Mendon Coach represents Michigan

Mendon High School’s John Schwartz is one of eight football coaches representing Michigan in a nationwide contest by the publication USA Today.

The “Best Of” contest, which started Monday, is an online-voting event to select the best high school football coach in the country. Every state is represented by a pool of eight coaches, and the field will be narrowed to one coach from each state after voting in the initial round concludes Tuesday.

Schwartz, who has a record of 208 wins and 40 losses over his 24-year tenure in Mendon, is the only coach on the Michigan ballot not from a private school or suburban area.

Regional and national voting rounds take place later in the month. The athletic department of the school whose coach wins the contest will be awarded $2,000.

Voting can be done through a link on the “sports” and “high school” tabs at usatoday.com.
