NOW: Penn Football’s Coach Cory Yeoman named the Colts/NFL “Coach of the Week“

For 24 seasons, the Indianapolis Colts have been honoring outstanding football coaches in Indiana each week-- this week recognizing Penn High School's Coach Cory Yeoman. 

Cory Yeoman achieved his 200th win after the recent Mishawaka vs. Penn "Backyard Brawl." 

Yeoman was presented the honor by Former NFL player and current Youth Football Commissioner for the Colts, Mike Prior.

Prior credits coaches for leading players on and off the field, not wanting their efforts to go unnoticed. 

He also met with Penn's senior players and gave a motivational speech, showed them his championship ring and answered their questions. 

This recognition includes a $2,000 check that goes towards Penn's Athletic Department. 

Yeoman credits the singular vision shared between coaches and players to work hard and have fun. 

"We get great coaching staffs [..] every day we worked hard, we laughed hard every day," said Yeoman. "It was intense every day and we're surrounded, most importantly, by all those guys who want black line like you." 

Yeoman's 200th win, makes Penn High School the only Indiana school in football history to produce two coaches with 200 career wins, Yeoman and Coach Chris Geesman-who coached Yeoman when he was a Penn student.
