The Packers have announced that Mark Ekiss of Wausau East High School in Wausau, Wis., has been named the Green Bay Packers High School Coach of the Week. Ekiss recently wrapped up his second year as an assistant football coach and will enter his third as a track & field coach this spring at Wausau East. He is the perfect illustration of the type of coach who impacts and inspires student athletes both on and off the field, as well as the community as a whole. Prior to coaching at Wausau East, Ekiss was a track & field coach at Boscobel High School in Boscobel, Wis.
