Following Berkeley High School’s September 18th football game victory over Castlemont High School, the Oakland Raiders chose to recognize Berkeley High’s varsity football coach Clarence Johnson (aka “CJ”) as their high school “Coach of the Week”.
Coach Johnson received news on Tuesday, September 22 that he had been chosen to receive the honor, and on the following Monday afternoon, two of the Raiders and two cheerleaders came to Berkeley High to honor Coach Johnson and hand him a giant check.
The “Coach of the Week” program provides teams with financial assistance needed to develop their football programs. As this week’s recipient, Berkeley High School was awarded a $1,000 donation to the school’s football program from the Oakland Raiders, and the NFL Foundation.
