Palatine's Olson selected as Chicago Bears Coach of the Week
The Chicago Bears announced Thursday that head coach Corey Olson of Palatine High School has been named the Chicago Bears High School Coach of the Week for Week 4.
Olson's Pirates (2-2) overcame a 17-13 deficit with 12 minutes left in the game to win 20-19 vs. Maine South (3-1) last week, despite playing without one of their top receivers, Jacob Bostick, who missed the game due to an injury. Maine South was ranked No. 1 in the AP Class 8A poll at the time.
Palatine started the season 0-2 before posting back-to-back victories.
Olson has been head coach since 2017 and is also a special-education teacher at Palatine. He played college football at Western Illinois University.
The Bears will make a $2,000 donation to the Palatine football program.
