Marc Franz has been the head coach at Rogers High School since the school opened in 2003. He has taught mathematics and coached in ISD 728 since 1992. Coach Franz’s purpose for the Rogers football program is to help teach our athletes to pursue excellence in sports and in life while enjoying the journey. Since 2009, the Royals have earned regular season championships 7 times and been section champs 4 times.

The Vikings and Gatorade are teaming up to honor a Gatorade Coach of the Week after each week of games during the high school football season. Coaches are chosen based on their contribution on the football field, but more importantly on the impact they make within their community and for their student athletes.

In addition to being recognized in local media for the achievement, the school’s football program receives Gatorade product for the season and a $1,000 donation on behalf of the Minnesota Vikings.
