Fallston Football Coach Dave Cesky Named Ravens High School Coach of the Week

From Harford County Public Schools:

Dave Cesky, head coach of the Fallston Varsity Football Team, was recently named Ravens High School Coach of the Week for the eighth week of the 2011 NFL season. Presented by Toyota, this is the 15th year of the Ravens’ award program.

Fallston moved into first place in the Maryland Class 2A standings with a win over North Harford, improving to 9-0. In his 35th year as a coach for Fallston, Cesky also serves as athletic director at the school. The local product graduated from Bel Air High School and went on to play football at Western Maryland College. His father, Al Cesky, coached football at Bel Air from 1950-1965.

This is Cesky’s second Ravens High School Coach of the Week nod. He earned his first in 1999. Each week during the season, the Ravens honor a high school coach who has made a significant impact on his athletes. Each winner will be presented at the Ravens vs. Browns home game on Dec. 24 for the naming of the Ravens’ High School Coach of the Year. Comcast SportsNet, the official sports network of the Baltimore Ravens, will also feature a weekly segment to honor the selected coach.

Each weekly recipient receives a $2,000 donation to the school’s football program, an award certificate signed by Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and a specially-designed Coach of the Week hat. Congratulations to Dave Cesky of Fallston High School!

    Having known your family for so long and especially your father, I know he is smiling and that the next sunshiny day will be a result of “Big Al” lighting up the heavens with pride. Cobgrats Dave,

      I’m sure you meant “Congrats,” but as a Fallston resident and a Fallston High alum, I second your sentiment. This is an honor for the Fallston community.

    Thanks for that correction Tom. I and all the other Dagger readers would have spent all day trying to figure out what “cobgrats” meant. Thank God you were here to point out a very minor typo by someone who was trying express their joy at the recognition of a local coach for his hard work and dedication.

    As a Harford county resident, and a customer of your 7-11 I’d like to say “Cobgrats on being an elitist snob”.

    Way to go Coach Cesky. Another well-deserved honor. Best of luck to you and your team the rest of the way.

    I am visually impaired and occassuonally miss a key when I am typing. I feel badly when this happens and only wanted to congratulate my former classmate and his team on their accomplishments. I did not wish to detract from anyone’s deserved kudos.

    Coach Cesky and the Cougar team should be the focus here so I apologize for diverting anything from their achievement.

    To Mr. Tom Myers, I hope you are grateful everyday for the blessing of sight and the ability to communicate clearly in many formats. Some of us struggle with these things and do the best we can with what we have.

      When Tom looks in the mirror each morning, I sincerely doubt he’s grateful for his sight.

      Good post, 1Voice, and props to the coach!
