Rutt was named the Browns High School Coach of the Year in December during the Browns final home game against Green Bay.
Then, before Christmas break, the Browns surprised Coach Rutt at Bay High with a gift of team helmets worth $25,000. The Browns had already awarded the Rockets $1,500 for winning a Game of the Week, and $3,000 for Ron Rutt being named Cleveland Browns Coach of the Year!
As an added treat for Rutt, he will be sent to the Pro Bowl in Florida next month!
Bay has excelled under the tutelage of Coach Rutt. Since 2014, Rutt has earned a 37-13 record (.740, including postseason) and has reached the playoffs each year while developing a program that finished a combined 10-40 the previous four seasons. In 2017, the Rockets finished 10-0 to post the school’s first undefeated regular season since 1954 and advanced to win two playoff games.
The Bay graduate also takes great pride in his team, school and local community and is committed to their immediate and long-term success by creating a family atmosphere. Here’s hoping the Browns take after Coach Rutt next year.
