BOB LIEPA FILE PHOTO | Mercy football coach Jeff Doroski was selected by the New York Jets for a Coach of the Week Award.

McGann-Mercy football coach Jeff Doroski was selected for the New York Jets High School Coach of the Week Award, the team announced Friday.

Doroski will receive $1,000 to benefit the football program as well as a certificate from the Jets.

In his second season as the head coach of Mercy, Doroski has guided the Monarchs to a 5-1 start. Mercy was 5-0 for the first time since 1976 before falling to Shoreham-Wading River Friday night.

The Monarchs, a preseason No. 12 seed, are currently in sixth place in the Division IV power rankings. Four other teams have identical 5-1 records. One of those teams, The Stony Brook School, will host the Monarchs this Friday in a pivotal D-IV game. The Monarchs will need a win to have a shot at snagging one of the top four seeds in the playoffs to earn a home game.
