As the head coach I would be concerned if you go down to injury or illness.  What's plan B?

Keep the faith Dave and know you have a friend here.

Thank you Quincy.  It was good to see you, Brother.

At least you know it is being taught right.

My thoughts, exactly.

So...I assume that you are platooning? You're always with offensive players? That in itself (coaching only O) is kinda' cool as you can teach what you really want and the way you want it taught. I did that a few times (only coaching offense, but never just by myself at HS!). Wow, that's a tough gig by yourself brother.

It is.  But...I can't complain about how the players are being taught. lol

Coach Potter, I know you're a very organized guy, but 118 for one, that's going to be a challenge.

You will need help from the kids. If they buy in, who knows.

118 in the program; not just on offense.

"Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong"

Sounds like the HC found the perfect man for the job.  🙂

He said, "I know you've done this before by yourself, so you should be okay with it."  I told him I am.

Plan B would be my QB.  I let him run the offense quite a bit.

Doh!

OK, good. I hold my breath there for a while.

The problems you will face are not as much football related as they are logistic ones.

But if you say you are OK with it, I am sure you will be.

To be good you have to work hard. To be better, you have to work harder. To be great, you have to keep working when the good ones stop.

Any openings for Custodian, Hall Monitor, or Maintence?  Just thinking of another way to get hired.  Illinois stipulation is that they be a "District Employee" doesnt say Teacher. 

😉

Not MPP... ONE TASK!  Teach them!  🙂

We have 80% TA positions, but they offer fewer hours than a 100% TA spot.

That's a plus.

Wait, is the money less?

I will never be able to complain or feel like I'm getting short end of the stick ever again.  🙁 Good luck coach.

The greatest accomplishment is not in never failing, but in rising again after you fail.

Coach DP-

I caught up with John K a few weeks back, he mentioned that you had stepped up to header at high school in a tough division...we both agreed, if anyone can do it, it's you.  Will be interested to hear how your season pans out coach.

respectfully,

Ken F.

If you show up for a fair fight, you are unprepared.
