Detroit Lions honor Frankfort’s Ed Schindler as Coach of the Week
Frankfort’s Ed Schindler became the final Detroit Lions High School Coach of the Week winner after leading the Panthers to a win over Elk Rapids to finish the regular season.
Schindler led Frankfort to an 8-1 record after knocking off Elk Rapids, 36-14, in Week 9 and earning a trip to face the East Jordan Red Devils in the first round of the playoffs.
Schindler is in his third season at Frankfort and 22nd overall as a high school head coach. He spent 11 seasons at Elk Rapids and eight at Whitmore Lake, compiling an overall record of 121-92. Schindler is 18-9 at Frankfort, reaching the playoffs all three seasons.
The Lions will send a $1,000 donation to the Frankfort football program and invite Schindler to Ford Field, where they will honor the nine 2022 Michigan High School Coaches of the Week at a Detroit Lions game.
The Lions will also pick a Coach of the Year, who will receive a $2,000 donation to the high school football program. The Lions Coach of the Year program is in its 26th year and has awarded $479,000 to Michigan high school football programs.
