We show that a certain family of the coefficients of a Drinfeld-Goss modular form with certain power eigenvalues for the Hecke operators at degree 1 primes the can be expressed as polynomial multiples of the first possible non-zero coefficient of that form. Along the way, we obtain some interesting combinatorial properties regarding difference operators in finite characteristic.
