Congratulations are in order this morning. Former center Tim Grunhard has been awarded quite the honor from the Kansas City Chiefs:
High School Coach of the Year.
Back in February of 2006 Grunhard took over the Miege football team and said, "We have one goal. And that's to win the state championship."
Mission accomplished. Along the way, Grunhard helped bring along Justin McCay, one of the country's top wide receivers (Oklahoma University). His team started out 2-2 and from there rattled off ten straight to win the state championship.
"It ranks right up there with winning a (college) national championship (as a player)," Grunhard said last week. "And with the Chiefs, gosh, winning a Super Bowl would have been the ultimate. But as a coach, winning a championship is certainly your ultimate goal, and I’d put it right up there with that national championship."
Grunhard also won the Chiefs Coach of the Week award back in October. Kimble Anders, another former Chief, won Coach of the Week honors this season as well.
What a cool honor. Congrats Mr. Grunhard!
