Northeast High School coach named Bucs' Coach of Week

St. Petersburg, Florida -- On Friday, Sept. 28, Northeast High School Head Coach Mike Jalazo proved that hard work and perseverance pay off. In an improbable second half comeback, Northeast recovered from a 31-7 deficit to defeat Tarpon Springs 41-37.

As a result of the Vikings' come-from-behind victory, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers named Jalazo the Buccaneers' Coach of the Week for Week 5 of the 2012 season.

On Tuesday, Jalazo was invited to One Buccaneer Place, where he met Buccaneers Head Coach Greg Schiano and was congratulated on the honor. In addition, the high school coach earned a $1,000 donation from the Buccaneers that will support Northeast's football program.

The Buccaneers will honor 10 high school coaches from Central Florida during this year's prep football season. A Coach of the Year, who receives an additional $1,000 for his football program, will be selected from the 10 weekly winners at the end of the season. To learn more, visit www.buccaneers.com.
