ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The Denver Broncos have named Chaparral’s John Vogt NFL High School Coach of the Week.
Vogt has led his Class 5A Wolverines to a record of 4-0 – their best early showing since joining the league. On Friday night, they posted a 28-23 victory over then-No. 1 Pomona.
“Oh, yeah, it was tremendous,” said Vogt. “I told them it would be like a heavyweight fight, just to hang in there and strap it on and go.”
Vogt, 64, was born in Reading, Pa., and graduated from Cherry Creek High School in 1966. He attended the University of Colorado for two years and graduated from Northern Colorado in 1971 with degrees in history and physical education. While in college, he played defensive back, linebacker and defensive end. In 1972, Vogt earned a master’s degree in physical education from Oklahoma.
The Denver Broncos will recognize 10 High School Coach of the Week honorees during the regular season. Each weekly winner will receive a $1,000 donation from the NFL Youth Football Fund to be used in the school’s football program.
