Coach Dan Roberts and Coach John Fiore

The New York Jets have announced that John Fiore, coach of the Montclair High School Mounties football team, has been named this year’s recipient of the New York Jets High School Coach of the Year Award. For his efforts, he will receive $2,000 to benefit the school’s football program and he will be presented with a certificate from the Jets.

According to the NY Jets website, “The award, in its 18th year, is given to a coach in the tristate 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.”

Coach Fiore is in his fourth season as head coach of the Mounties with a 42 -6 record. On Saturday, Montclair defeated Ridgewood, 33-0 at MetLife Stadium giving Montclair its second straight undefeated state championship season and won its sixth NJSIAA playoff title in program history.

Fiore tells Barista Kids “It’s humbling to be recognized for all the hard work we do, but I don’t take is as Coach Fiore’s win, I take it as Montclair’s win.” Fiore says the $2,000 prize money goes to the Gridiron Club and will be used for State Championship rings for the team.

Congratulations Coach Fiore!
