The New­town foot­ball team re­ceived the first of what is likely many ac­co­lades over the next sev­eral weeks as it closes on an un­de­feated sea­son.

Nighthawks coach Bobby Pat­ti­son was hon­ored by the New York Jets and Ga­torade as the re­gion’s High School Coach of the Week. New­town is 8-0 af­ter de­feat­ing Brook­field Fri­day night.

New­town will re­ceive an au­to­matic bid to com­pete in a 7-on-7 tour­na­ment hosted by the Jets. Pat­ti­son will at­tend the Jets’ home fi­nale against Green Bay on Dec. 23, when he will be hon­ored along with the other win­ners.

The Coach of the Week award is given to a coach in the Tri-State area who serves 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, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease.

Pat­ti­son be­came the sec­ond lo­cal coach to re­ceive the honor so far in 2018. Dan­bury coach Au­gus­tine Tieri earned the award Week 4.
