]()Foxborough, Mass. - Beverly High School's Dan Bauer has been named this week's New England Patriots High School Coach of the Week in recognition of his team's 28-20 come-from-behind victory over previously unbeaten Somerset High School on Saturday, December 4, to win the MIAA Division III Super Bowl Championship. The New England Patriots Charitable Foundation will donate $1,000 to Beverly High School's football program in Bauer's name in recognition of his Coach of the Week selection.

Bauer and his captains - Joe Wioncek and George Kallas - were guests at Gillette Stadium on Wednesday to receive the award. They will be featured on the team's weekly television magazine show, Patriots All Access, which airs at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 10 on WBZ-TV in Boston and later on Patriots.com.

The Panthers recovered from an 0-5 start to the season to finish the year with a 6-6 record. In typical Beverly fashion, the Panthers rallyed to score 14 unanswered points for a victory after trailing Somerset 20-14 at halftime of the Division III Super Bowl.

"It's an unbelievable feeling. I'm so proud of our kids," said Bauer, whose squad became just the fourth team in any Beverly High sport to win a state title. "They showed great perseverance. For us to come back and do what we did says something very special about our kids and their character."

This season marks the 15th year in which the Patriots have joined the National Football League in conducting the High School Coach of the Week program, which recognizes outstanding high school coaches and promotes youth football throughout New England. Patriots and NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Andre Tippett, the team's executive director of community affairs, oversees the program as part of the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation's commitment to youth football initiatives.

"In winning their first ever High School Super Bowl, The Beverly Panthers were the epitome of perseverance, hard work, and resiliency," said Tippett. "As players, those are crucial traits if you want to recover from failure and setbacks in sports competition. For the Panthers to come back the way they did, here at Gillette Stadium to win the Division III Super Bowl, they proved they are capable of doing just that. This is a dream come true for these young men and a real test of their character and something they are going to remember the rest of their lives."

Next week, one high school coach will be named the New England Patriots High School Coach of the Year and will receive an additional $2,000 contribution toward the school's football program.

The New England Patriots Charitable Foundation is the non-profit through which the Patriots support charitable and philanthropic organizations throughout New England. This support comes in the form of direct grants, in-kind donations and player appearances. The foundation assists a variety of charitable organizations and programs throughout New England by supporting their educational, family and health initiatives.
