Fall is my favourite time of the year. However, it hasn’t been the same the past 4 years because I haven’t coached football. I coached high school football for 11 seasons (4 as the head coach) and I miss it so much. It became a huge part of who I am. Circumstances have kept me away but I hope that we will be able to get this new company rolling soon so that I can quit the restaurant industry for good and schedule my time so that I can coach again. I would love to coach at the senior high school level again but would be interested in young men’s or men’s level too.
My old team at SCITS finally broke out of years of futility this season with a 2-2 record, a third place finish and their first playoff birth since 2005. I am happy for the school but am disappointed to not have been the coach to bring them back to respectability. I really believe I could have built a strong program there starting in 2009 (the first season I missed). They play my other former school, St. Christopher Cyclones, in the semi-finals. Good luck to both…really miss coaching the Cyclones too.
Big weekend for my favourite football teams. Michigan plays Michigan State and the Chicago Bears play the Detroit Lions…#goblue! #gobears!
