Sharon’s Dave Morse Named New England Patriots High School Coach of the Week

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. –Following a 40-28 win over Westborough last weekend to improve to 2-0, Sharon High School‘s Dave Morse has been named the New England Patriots’ first Coach of the Week of the 2022 season. .

Coach Morse, currently in his 12th year as head coach of Sharon’s football team, guided the team to its first 2-0 start since the Eagles won the Super Bowl in 2012. Westborough took a 14-0 lead but Sharon outscored Rangers 34-14 in the final three frames to secure victory.

Patriots, College and Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Andre Tippett, now the team’s executive director of community affairs, met with Sharon Eagles captains and coaching staff on Tuesday morning to outline the football program with a donation $1,000 on behalf of the Patriots Foundation in honor of Coach Morse. The visit and check presentation will be featured on the Patriots’ weekly television show, “Patriots All Access,” which airs Friday nights at 7:00 p.m. on WBZ-TV in Boston. The episode will be released and archived Friday night on Patriots.com.

“The Sharon Eagles have depth and toughness,” Tippett said. “Now that they are playing in the Independent League, I expect Coach Morse to field a very competitive Eagles team this year.”

The Eagles will look to continue their winning streak this Friday against Dover-Sherborn, who also hold a 2-0 record.

This is the 27th year the Patriots have joined the National Football League to lead the High School Coach of the Week program, which recognizes outstanding high school coaches and promotes youth football throughout New England. The 2022 season marks the 11th year the Patriots have sent Tippett to present the award to their school’s coach.

In late fall, one of the weekly winners will be named New England Patriots High School Coach of the Year and receive an additional $2,000 contribution towards the school’s football program.
