FNF Coaches Talk — Coaches Appreciation Month in Review

FNF Coaches Talk

Welcome back, Coach! We appreciate you, and we actually just had an entire month to prove it. At the end of April, we gave away a free drone to a worthy coach who entered our drone contest. Here’s that winner — Hearne High (Texas) athletic director and head football coach Ricky Sargent.

Sargent did his job remotely from March until May due to flood damage at the school. Feeling discouraged by the state of affairs in a school in which 98% of the population is economically disadvantaged, Sargent decided to reach out to FNF Coaches for support. He entered the 2021 FNF Coaches Drone Contest by stating his case on our website. He was selected from a pool of 35 entrants, and received a free drone this week.

Here are some other highlights from Coaches Appreciation Month.
