The Buffalo Bills and ADPRO Sports are proud to announce this week’s high school coaches of the week for both the Buffalo and Rochester regions.
These two coaches were selected for their impact on their players on and off the field and will receive $1,000 for their football programs. Both the Buffalo and Rochester region’s Coach of the Year will be named during the Week 17 game against the New England Patriots.
Buffalo Region Coach of the Week #2
Chuck Nagel of Newfane High School is the Coach of the Week for the Buffalo region. On Friday, Newfane won Friday’s home conference game against Barker/Royalton-Hartland High School by a score of 43-11 to go 2-0 on the season. The win marked the first time Newfane started a season 2-0 since 2003.
Nagel led Newfane to a Division title in 2019, seven years after beginning his tenure as head varsity coach in 2012. He also led the Panthers to the Section 6 playoffs in 2017. He has been with Newfane since the 2003-04 school year.
Nagel is a frequent volunteer at the Newfane Community Weekend and could be seen in the dunk tank at an event raising money for the Newfane Alumni Association this past summer. He was also a huge advocate for leading Newfane’s drive to install lights and new turf on the football field and athletic complex, which has led to increased attendance at Friday night games.
Nagel said that he adapts his coaching style each year as the players and personnel in the program change.
One of Nagel’s favorite memories is in progress, as he is enjoying coaching his son, CJ, who is a senior on the team.
