Attleboro High School’s Mike Strachan has been named this week’s New England Patriots High School Coach of the Week in recognition of his team’s 37-20 victory over Franklin on Friday, Sept. 27 in Attleboro. The Bombardiers used a balanced offensive attack and a number of key turnovers on defense to win their first league game of the season. The New England Patriots Charitable Foundation will donate $1,000 to Attleboro High School’s football program in Strachan’s name in recognition of his Coach of the Week selection.

Patriots and Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Andre Tippett, the team’s executive director of community affairs, visited Coach Strachan’s team on Tuesday, Oct. 1, at Attleboro High School. The visit and check presentation will be featured on the Patriots weekly television magazine show, “Patriots All Access,” which airs at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4, on WBZ-TV in Boston and will be available immediately after on Patriots.com.

Tippett oversees the program as part of the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation’s commitment to youth football initiatives.

“Congratulations to Coach Mike Strachan and his team,” Tippett said. “The Attleboro High School offense was a well-oiled machine with two passing touchdowns in the first half and three rushing touchdowns in the last three quarters to seal the victory. They are 1-0 in league play and 3-0 overall. This was a big win for the Bombardiers.”

At the conclusion of the season, one high school coach will be named the New England Patriots High School Coach of the Year and will receive an additional $2,000 contribution toward the school’s football program.
