The Chicago Bears announced Thursday that coach Jake Brosman of Hampshire High School has been named the Chicago Bears High School Coach of the Week for Week 7 and running back Jordan Anderson of Joliet Catholic Academy was named the Chicago Bears High School All-Star.

The Coach of the Week and High School All-Stars programs are sponsored by Athletico Physical Therapy. The Bears will make a $2,000 donation to

 

the Hampshire High School football program and direct a $500 donation to the youth football program of Anderson's choice.

Last Friday, Brosman and the Whip-Purs (5-2) won their home Fox Valley Conference game against Huntley (2-5) 15-7, making the Whip-Purs playoff eligible for the first time since 2015.

After winning only six games over the last five seasons, Brosman found a way to motivate the players to achieve what seemed impossible and advance to the playoffs. Brosman joined Hampshire as a football coach in the summer of 2018. Previously, he was a basketball/football coach and a math teacher at Dunlap Middle School.

Hampshire will play at Jacobs (4-3) on Friday.
