Lasts Seasons

December 19, 2013

When I coached at Whitewater in Franklin County back in the 1960’s, we had 3 teams on our schedule that were in their last high school season before consolidations.  Patriot was the first one to close, and when we played in that gymnasium, we had 2 referees that must have never seen goal tending.   One of our forwards had at least 5 goal tendings during the game and none of them were called.  They were not a good team to start with so after 3 or 4 of these their coach went ballistic and got thrown out of the game.  He didn’t have a JV coach , so the principal had to finish it.  The situation at Burney was so bad their last year that they only had 12 players total–varsity and JV.  When we jumped out with a large lead in the JV game, they pulled two of their JV starters and those two players then started the varsity game.  I guess they were trying to win one of the two games.  It was so bad the Whitewater varsity scored 120 points.  At Moores Hill, there were only 10 players for both teams.  So again, when the JV game got lopsided in the first half, they played the rest of the JV game with 4 players and held one of their kids to be a varsity reserve.  So when you think you are having a bad season now, think of these 3 schools and tell yourself “we really aren’t that bad”.
