LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation announced today that Quantico Middle/High School head football coach, Paul Roy, has been named the 2016 Redskins High School Coach of the Year presented by Inova Sports Medicine.
Coach Roy has coached varsity football, basketball and baseball at Quantico during the past 17 years. The Warriors finished the 2016 season with an impressive 11-1 record, losing in the championship round of the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association Division 3 playoffs to Roanoke Catholic, 38-21.
Roy was selected as the Redskins High School Coach of the Week for the Week of Oct. 24. As a result of his Coach of the Year selection, Roy will be nominated for the 2016 Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year award and will be invited to Orlando for the USA Football National Conference during Pro Bowl week.
Coach Roy is highly respected among his athletes, their parents and the entire Quantico community. Quantico Middle/High School Assistant Principal, Dan Mulhern, said, "We are fortunate and grateful to have Coach Roy on our staff. Quality programs are not pulled together simply from the numbers of student athletes one has to select from; rather they are sustained and maintained by dedicated professionals at the top of their game. Coach Roy is a leader and is an invaluable asset to our organization."

The High School Coach of the Week program is a league-wide initiative designed to recognize area high school football coaches who continuously demonstrate hard work and dedication to their football programs, the health and safety of their players, and who make a difference in their communities.
This season, in partnership with Inova Sports Medicine, the Redskins Charitable Foundation has convened a panel of local high school football media experts to provide nominations of deserving high school coaches for consideration and selection. Each coach chosen throughout the high school football season will receive a $2,000 donation from the Redskins Charitable Foundation to their football program and a framed certificate signed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden, Redskins President Bruce Allen and General Manager Scot McCloughan, as well as other giveaway items from the Redskins Charitable Foundation and Inova Sports Medicine.
