Dramatic win earns Webb honor
Kyle Brouhard was the hero, weaving 20 yards for the go-ahead touchdown in the game's final seconds.
But Brouhard wasn't the only Cardinal to attract a bit of attention following Eudora's 26-20 win over Anderson County Sept. 23. Coach Gregg Webb was awarded the Kansas City Chiefs Coach of the Week honors last Thursday as the team prepared for practice.
Former-Chief quarterback Tony Adams presented Webb with the reward, complimenting not only the team's performance on the field but the coach's performance on the sideline.
"It's not so much about the game," Adams said. "It's about how he managed the sidelines. I was impressed with how he conducted himself, and it was reflected in the team's performance."
Adams handed Webb a $500 check intended for the school, and gave the four-year head coach a Chiefs hat and a football painting to commemorate the occasion.
"As a staff and as a team and as a coach, we're in pretty good company to be recognized by the Kansas City Chiefs," Webb said. "It sure makes our kids realize that people are watching, and we'll sure accept that."
Adams was representing the Chiefs Ambassadors, a group of former Chiefs who work to support the team and the community. A free agent acquired in 1975, he played in Kansas City for four seasons.
Adams and other Ambassadors travel to high school games in the Kansas City area. He said the quality of the match up between Eudora and Anderson County prompted him to swing by for the second half of the game.
Webb's demeanor impressed him, but he said without Brouhard's run, there was probably no award.
"I probably wouldn't be here," Adams said Thursday. "That's one of the things, you've got to call the right play at the right time and get the ball in the hands of the right players. Good coaches are about as good as their players, and you can see how they fought against adversity and came back in that game."
