Columbia RB Brandon Coleman Named High School Impact Player of the Week

CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Gladiators announced today that junior running back Brandon Coleman of Columbia High School has been named the Week 4 High School Impact Player of the Week for his standout performance in the Raiders’ 48-34 win over Keystone on Friday night.

Coleman not only rushed for 234 yards and four scores but also returned a kickoff for a touchdown and led the defense with 12 tackles, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, and an interception that was also returned for another score.

“It was an unbelievably tight race this week for the Player of the Week honors,” said Gladiators Offensive Line Coach Chad Schofield. “What stood out most was Brandon’s ability to make an impact on offense, defense, as well as special teams. Making the contributions that he did in all three key phases of the game earned him the right to be named this week’s High School Impact Player of the Week.”

As the Gladiators’ High School Impact Player of the Week for Week 4 of the 2017 season, Coleman will receive an award recognizing his accomplishment, an in-game appearance at a 2018 Cleveland Gladiators home game, a visit at practice by coach Schofield, and a $500 grant towards the Columbia High School football program.
