Does your high school coach suck?????

I need to get something off my chest. So spare the rant please. Every community wants a great coach. That's a given. Well if you're lucky enough to find one, great. But he wont be there long. Because I'm sure he will want the try the next level. And if he is great I'm also sure he will get the chance. A great football program is built from the community. High school coaches don't get to recruit. As a community we have to get behind our coaches and player to build them. tearing either one down only makes it worse on the program. Winning and losing has to be place at the feet of the player. If you give them an excuse like the coach sucks or the officials make bad calls. Then the player wont have a the ownership in the results.  There is no doubt some coaches are better than others. But keep in mind. Would a great coach want to come to a bad community. My advice would be to get behind your program with all you have. Then you can be a part of building a great program.

Not always. Some coaches choose to become part of the community and build a family type legacy like Jimmerson at Enterprise HS or Sartin at Bogue Chitto in communities that realize that football is a part of building leadership for future generations and not a means to an end, like a better paycheck. Those are the kind of men who are the leaders of our future generations.

That"s true. There is no such thing as always. I am speaking more in general  as a community. And the fact that it takes a community to raise a child not just an individual. Some are born  with great athletic skills but that comes and goes. A great program at least in my opinion is one that makes the best out of the talent they have. In reality that is all a great high school coach can do. A coach can make a team better than there talent. But that doesn't mean he can make them win in all regardless of there talent.

If a 5A or 6A school came calling they’d jump in a heartbeat. Human nature says people want the better paying job, better optics for a job, and a chance to be at the highest level.

Not always. Look at a school like Fyffe, Alabama. 2a/3a school. Coach has been there since 97 with a record of 272-42, with 9 losses total since 2010.

 

Some guys are content

And if Hoover, Pratville, Thompson, etc. would’ve come calling he would more than likely leave.
