it. If we can do both, we will."Im excited to be their coach, he added. "Ill tell them I expect them to act like champions on and off the field, and that we should expect the very best out of each other. Football is a great team sport. In the course of a season you can experience the best of times as well as the worst of times. Your ability to handle the ups and the downs is what defines you and your team. When it's good, I'll tell them it's good. When it's bad, I'll tell them that, too. They need to be able to distinguish between the two.When I came to the Cape a year ago I felt I was done in coaching. I explored other outside opportunities, but I kept coming back to the fact I mi sed coaching. I mi sed the players and the preparation that goes into a season. I mi sed the ebb and Andrew Whitworth Jersey
flow, handling the highs and the lows."I have always admired high school coaches who give their time to their players. They have a chance to impact young lives. That is exciting and Im looking forward to having an effect on these kids lives."
