He was a native of Richmond, Virginia. He continued to play baseball in college, and twice led the ACC in home runs. He was chosen by the 49ers in the draft, the second player chosen overall. A big , and strong runner, he was also an excellent receiver. He played in four Pro Bowls.
In nine seasons with the 49ers, he missed only one game. Overall, he rushed for yards, and he caught passes for yards. He scored 62 touchdowns - 45 rushing and 17 receiving. Only the fact that I'm not young, with a long life in front of me, makes the realization bearable. The Washington law defines harassment, intimidation or bullying as any intentionally written message or image—including those that are electronically transmitted—verbal, or physical act, including but not limited to one shown to be motivated by race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, including gender expression or identity, mental or physical disability or other distinguishing characteristics, when an act: Schools are required to take action if students report they are being bullied.
Since August , each school district has been required to adopt the model Washington anti-bullying policy and procedure. Just as I thought. Mike, an old friend, has just finished his first three weeks as head coach at Highland Park High, in Topeka. Enormous job, did I say? Consider… Highland Park currently has a game losing streak going. Six of its last 10 seasons have been winless. Its best season in recent memory was That was 15 years ago.
Last season, Highland Park was outscored Its closest game was a loss. That was also the fewest points it allowed. Two more just missed 50 with 49 points, and another scored Mike is up to the job.
He is mentally tough and demanding but his kids know that he loves them. As a coach he's fundamentally sound and his teams are, too. Mike has experience working in tough situations. In his most recent job, in Wahluke, Washington, working with a largely Hispanic population, he put a very competitive team on the field and earned the trust and confidence of the kids' parents.
To give you an idea of how he's approaching this new job - he's begun tthe process of making home visits to every senior. A couple of them, in fact, are hurting. I lay the blame entirely on the commissioner, on his flawed attempt to build a network, and on his failure to find a way for people in other parts of the country to get to see Pac football on the tube Kickoffs at ten o'clock Eastern on Saturday night don't get it.
Not too many years ago, Portland changed the name of a major north-south arterial from 39th Avenue to Cesar E. FBS Player Selections It helps me that Bill Lawlor, another coaching friend and an Augustana teammate, spoke of him in almost reverent terms. And on top of that, he's been a high school coach!
Bruce Cerone from Emporia State is on there because in my early days of coaching, he played for a team called the Long Island Chiefs, and he was really good. Steve McNair - enough said. And he's a great guy. When we first met, he was coaching at a tiny high school in eastern North Carolina - any farther east and it would have been on the Outer Banks - called Mattamuskeet, in the tiny town of Swan Quarter.
At that time, Mattamuskeet was struggling to win a game. I stayed at his home and we really got to know each other. I marveled at the devotion he showed to his kids and to the game of football. We started early in the morning and went all day, sustained at lunch by some great East Carolina pork barbecue, and we went until 9 or so in the evening - until the kids were finished lifting.
And then the kids loaded into the school mini-bus and Eddie drove them all home, every last one of them. His dad was his coach from the time he was little. He knows his football, he is super organized, and he is great with kids.
And then, after just one season at East Wake, the head coach left abruptly for another job. Dave was qualified to be the head coach, but the school chose to go with the existing defensive coordinator. At my recent clinic, coaches Potter and Williams had just been informed that they were being retained, and they had many of their JVs on hand to serve as demonstrators. The coaches in attendance remarked at what good kids they were, and you and I all know that the coaching had something to do with it.
And then, this past Monday, Coaches Potter and Williams were informed that this year the new head coach was not going to have a separate JV program - he was going to combine the two squads for practice - and therefore he no longer needed their services. The JVs went running the Double Wing.
He has an impressive record as a head middle school coach , but he does sound, from a newspaper interview, as if he might possibly have let that go to his head. I can not remember the name of that T team we played when we were at North Beach, perhaps Willimate Willapa Valley - HW , but they ran a split T version and had had a long winning tradition.
As I remember we gave them a heck of game, losing at their place, late in the fourth quarter. I do think you came back the next year and beat them but the split t dive and double dive proved a bear to defend. I did enjoy seeing those clips, dead T, two tight ends, and wonderful faking.
In this pass happy age of spread and fire there still seems to be a few hard core football offenses still around. Like you I also have had a ton of respect for Charles Krauthammer. For all the same reasons you mentioned, AND He will be missed. Your insights into the perspective of legalized gambling from the viewpoint of the Democratic party is spot on. They have been, are, and will always be only about "the party".
The party, the party, the party and only what's good for No surprise about the NBA ratings. Don't anticipate watching any in the near future either. Larry Bird was much better. Michael Jordan was the best.
I think that time frame was the last time I watched an NBA game. I analyzed game film this past season for one of our coaching buddies in Michigan. His team won the Division 8 Michigan State Championship. Must be disappointing for you as a Yale alum to witness the slow, agonizing demise of its once proud reputation. At one time it was quite something to be an "Eli" or "Yalie". I'm sure it still is for you, but has some of it's luster been tarnished recently?
After observing how young parents raise their children these days I have to wonder how most of us ever survived our childhoods. Frankly, the only public places my mom would take us my dad was always working were the grocery store, clothes store, or once in a great while if we behaved Woolworth's to get an ice cream.
Have a great week! Interestingly enough the Climax Scotts it the video you posted their Head Coach Kevin Langs is a long time T coach at CS he took over a struggling program and turned them into a state champion with it.
We played them in the playoffs for the first time, of course with the T being as popular as it is in our state it is impossible to winning any championship at any division from seeing it at least once. So we spend all year preparing for it even if we only see it a few times. In 15' we really CS down and got out to a lead at half, they had a little change up double wing formation that they would have their QB in pistol and run some bucksweep and trap from this gave us some challenges and we decided we were going to implement it for a empty set out of our DW the next year.
In 16' we played CS again for a regional championship and sure enough they were running all DW, after the game Kevin and I had a good laugh on how we had copied him and they had copied us Unfortunately, they will be making a move to 8 man in another year but we have had a couple great games with them and they are a top small school in our state every year. There was a Coach in Bay City named Elmer Engle who won a ton of games in the 60's and 70's running the T, Irv Sigler learned it from him and then went to Cheboygan and had 4 undefeated seasons, following that Irv went to the state of Washington as a HS coach for a few years prior to returning to Michigan and winning multiple state titles at Belding High School.
After Irv retired from teaching he took the Head Coaching job at Olivet College a school that was his alma mater but had been struggling he got it turned around there running Engle's T. Although there are a ton of great T coaches in our state now he was the one who really made it popular and at this point I would estimate probably 1 of every 8 or so schools in our state run it.
At this point there are a couple different versions of it but all are tough to stop.
