The Warriors finished 12-1. The MHSFCA consists of 18 regions.

“Mike is well deserving of this recognition,” Western principle Joseph Bell said. “Not only is he an exceptionally talented football coach, he is a caring mentor to all the students involved in our program. He emphasizes character and academic goals as a first priority with a long-term vision for their success going forward to college and in adult life.”
