You have to like Mike Cavey. The Apalachee High School baseball coach is one who always tells it like it is. If his team is not playing well or living up to its potential, he’ll tell you.
Now, he doesn’t single out players for bad performances (the Wildcats win and lose as a team), but he’s not one to gloss the situation over when the outcome is not the desired one.
It’s a refreshing attitude and one that makes talking with Cavey about this program enjoyable. This past Sunday evening, Cavey and I spoke about his team’s fast start to the 2012 season. Just as Cavey will tell it like it is when things aren’t going right, the coach was quick to praise his team for what they have done in the early stages of the new campaign.
