On Wednesday nights the teams in my region do this sort of passing league. It allows the athletes to get out and used to running routes, dropping into coverage and harnessing a competitive instinct. For the past two weeks my team has played my old high school, which has been really weird.
Part of me thought that if I was to return home I would start at my high school. I’d coach there and learn more from the people who first taught me. But when I got the opportunity to get a chance at the school I am at, I took it. I guess that is why seeing the old colors has struck such a reaction with me.
The cool thing, has been seeing my team go toe to toe with the old club. Granted, we still have a couple of years to be on their level. I really think if the school I am working with develops their talent correctly, they could run the region.
