    Quite an accomplishment – not a big list of coaches. I believe the induction will take place in 2011, with the announcement being made last month.

    Looking forward to watching him coach The Scots to a great season this year!

    he’ll be judged by “w”s and “l”s.
    if there aren’t enough “w”s,
    he’ll be gone, regardless of
    how well he coaches or builds
    welcome to the crucible that
    is small time, high pressure
    high school athletics.
