The above title will only matter to me and two other guys when I read this post again in 20 years. After we (Tidwell, Kruger, Bundy) finish breaking down film on Saturdays Coach T. ends the morning with the saying, "game, set, match, it's been real, it's been fun, see you boys later".
Football season is officially over for the Belton Tigers of '06. I am not proud to announce that we went 0-10 although the record in itself is interesting.
1, we have a great group of boys that play football for us and I have really enjoyed coaching them. Some of the kids that we coach are really some of the best I have every been around. It is really enjoyable to shake a dads hand and tell him how great his son is. I hope a coach says that to me someday.
2, we were unable to compete with the teams in our district.
3, some parents in the stands realize that and some do not. It is amazing how bad of a coach we become when we are in a losing season, and then how great of a coach we become when we are in a winning season. Do coaches change or do players change?
4, at the same time, football is a team sport, coaches and players included and there were most definitely some coaching errors this year, as there are every year, that possibly could have changed the outcome of a few games. No one is perfect.
At any rate, football season is over. This was my first Saturday and Sunday home since the second week in August and it was nice to be with the family for a full weekend.
Belton is a special place to work and coach and live. It is not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but it is a good place to be.
I'm looking forward to sharing more with my 3 readers in the near future.
