Maybe, just maybe, some of Walt Whitman High School's football success will rub off on the Jets.

That was the sentiment, at least, when Robert Saleh honored the program and 13-year coach Robin Rosa with his T-shirt of the week. The Wildcats are 6-0 so far this season and in first place in Suffolk Division I.

"An undefeated coach with six wins, rub some off and see if we can get a dub," Saleh said, rubbing his shirt.

As coach of the week, Rosa will receive a $1,000 donation to his program, as well as tickets to a luxury suite for the Jets game against the Saints on Dec. 12. The high school will get 100 tickets to a preseason game next year.

Whitman hosts 5-1 Commack at 6 p.m. on Sunday.
