Bob Schellinger of LaPorte High School has been named the Colts/NFL Coach of the Week, a program presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Coach Bob Schellinger has been honored with this distinction for admirably gathering his players to compete in a game just two days after the Slicers tragically lost teammate Jake West. 
“The strength and courage that Coach Schellinger and his entire team have shown following the tragic loss of their beloved teammate is truly inspiring,” said Pete Ward, Indianapolis Colts COO. “The entire Colts family stands behind the team and the community as they grieve the loss of Jake West and work to carry on his legacy.”
