Fairmont head football coach Mat Mahoney has been selected as the Minnesota Vikings’ Gatorade Coach of the Week following the Cardinals’ 41-19 victory over the St. Peter Saints last Friday night.

The Vikings will give $1,000 and a year’s supply of Gatorade to Fairmont High School for Mahoney winning the weekly honor.

Mahoney is currently serving in his 13th season as the Cardinals’ head football coach and has compiled a career record of 88-42 for a .677 winning percentage.

Mahoney, who also captured the award in the fall of 2011, has guided the Fairmont football program to four state appearances, including runner-up finishes in both 2011 and 2018.
