In more than two decades of covering high school athletics, you learn a thing or two about coaches.
When it comes to quotes, some coaches are pretty honest about themselves and the team they coach. If the team is not playing well, they’ll say so — to a degree at least.
Some coaches hate having to work with the local newspaper. While I have not had that experience (for the most part) in Barrow County, I’ll always remember one coach who simply hated the press. He didn’t care if the story praised him to the moon, he had no use for newspapers and even less use for the local sports reporter. It became a mission of mine to make this coach at least respect me, even if he never read anything I wrote about him or his team.
