For the second week in a row, the Atlanta Falcons are honoring a girls’ flag football coach with the team’s High School Coach of the Week Award. This week’s winner is Montez Swinney, head coach at Dunwoody High School. Swinney is also a coach on the boys’ football team.

At the 2019 boys’ state football championships, the Falcons and the Georgia High School Association announced that girls’ flag football was becoming an officially sanctioned sport in the state thanks to a donation from the team and the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation. In 2019, 52 schools across the state participated in flag football with more than 800 girls taking the field.
