The New York Jets announced that Sean Tremblay of Comsewogue High School on Long Island has been named this week's recipient of the New York Jets High School Coach of the Week Award. For his efforts, Tremblay will receive $1,000 to benefit the school's football program, and he will be presented with a certificate from the Jets.
The award, in its 16th year, is given to coaches in the tristate area who serve the best interests of the game through the teaching of sound football fundamentals, the motivation of young players to achieve, and the promotion of youth football by way of dedication to their community, their school and their student-athletes.
Tremblay is in his first season as the head coach of the Warriors after serving 12 years as an assistant coach at the school. This Comsewogue alumnus played fullback and linebacker, earning all-league, all-county and all-state honors from 1990-92. His 1990 team won the Rutgers Trophy, awarded to the best team in Suffolk County as voted on by all head coaches in county.
Sean lettered one season at the University of Georgia before transferring to the University of Connecticut. He earned two more letters at UConn and graduated with a degree in English. He played Arena Football for seven seasons with the Albany Firebirds, New York Dragons and Carolina Cobras, and was a member of the 1999 Firebirds' Arena Bowl XIII championship team. In addition to his head coaching duties, Sean is a guidance counselor at Comsewogue.
Comsewogue opened the season by defeating the Bellport Clippers, the defending Long Island Class 2 champions, 21-14. The Warriors' next game will be on the road on Friday, Sept. 16 at 7 p.m. when they face the Eastport South Manor Sharks.
