Broncos name Jajczyk as High School Coach of the Week

Posted Sep 3, 2014

The Denver Broncos named Dan Jajczyk of Adams City High School as their NFL High School Coach of the Week presented by the Colorado National Guard.

DENVER — The Denver Broncos named Dan Jajczyk of Adams City High School as their NFL High School Coach of the Week presented by the Colorado National Guard.

Jajczyk and his Class 4A Adams City Eagles won their first game of the season when they defeated the Class 5A Thornton Trojans 21-8 Friday night. The Eagles shut out the Trojans for the first three quarters before allowing eight points in the fourth.

It was Jajczyk’s first win as a head coach—he took over the program in late March after 12 seasons as an assistant coach at Eaglecrest (2001-05), Overland (2010-11) and Chaparral (2007-09, 12-13) high schools.

The Adam City Eagles snapped a 29-game losing streak and had a 1-49 record over the past five seasons heading into Friday night’s game. The team’s lone victory during that span was a result of a forfeit that wiped out a 20-point loss.

"I'm just so proud of the kids and the coaching staff," Jajczyk said. "We've come a long way in a short amount of time."

Antonio Scott scored all three touchdowns for the Eagles, recording 169 yards on 19 rush attempts.

Jajczyk, 56, hails from Cambridge, England, and graduated from Hamilton Township High School in Columbus, Ohio in 1976, where he was a tight end and outside linebacker for two years on the football team. He was in the Air Force for 20 years, from 1977-97, before he started working in school security in 2001. Jajczyk is now supervisor of security for Adams County School District 14.

The Denver Broncos will recognize 10 High School Coach of the Week honorees during the regular season, as well as a Coach of the Year at the end of the season. The program is presented by the Colorado National Guard with a selection committee led by The Denver Post’s Neil Devlin. The committee also includes Broncos Ring of Fame defensive back Billy Thompson and 850 KOA’s Andy Lindahl.

Each weekly winner will receive a $2,000 donation made possible by the NFL Foundation and the Colorado National Guard to be used by the school’s football program. Additionally, the Coach of the Year will be honored and presented with a $4,000 donation to the respective school’s football program during the Broncos’ home game on Dec. 28 against the Oakland Raiders.
