After taking over the program this year, Woodruff led his underdog Bears to a win against fifth ranked Apollo High School in a 32-21 season opening victory.

The award was presented to Woodruff and the Bradshaw Mountain High School football team on Friday, September 6 at 7:30 a.m. at the school (6000 E. Long Look Drive, Prescott Valley).
