Wauconda High School's head coach Dave Mills has been named the Chicago Bears High School "Coach of the Week" for Week 3.

The Bears will make a $2,000 donation to the Wauconda High School football program. Mills and the Bulldogs (3-0) have yet to allow a point this season after winning 69-0 vs. Proviso West (Week 1), 20-0 at Riverside-Brookfield (Week 2) and 42-0 at Grant Community (Week 3).

 

Mills played tight end at Brigham Young University and was part of their 1984 championship team. He spent two seasons as a free agent in the NFL with Washington (1985) and New England (1986).

He also teaches a number of courses at Wauconda High School, including accounting, sports marketing, economics and computer apps.

The "Coach of the Week" program is sponsored by Athletico Physical Therapy.
