overall goal is to impact every kid

Yes, that's it.  Every one of them.
When I arrived at EWHS last spring, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to do that.  I thought that anything more than a 1A or 2A school would be too many players to deal with.  EWHS is a 3A school and I have only one AC, but we've made sure that we're in everyone's ear and getting their attention.  We have since added one more AC (he starts next week).  My next project is to see how we can raise funds for college scholarship/tuition money.  That may probably involve setting up some sort of "foundation."  But I've reached out to some men who have experience with foundations, so we'll see.  Regardless, I'm sure it will start out very small.  Grrrrr.  I'm pretty impatient.

So if We can get through to at least one kid every season I feel we've accomplished something.

If you'll forgive give, I think that getting "through to at least one kid every season" is an awfully low bar to aim for.  You'll hit more than that mark, if even accidentally.  Our approach is to affect every one of them as if saving their life depends on it.  After all, it may.

Maybe you corrupted the files?

That's possible. Odd that it works for others and worked for him once but not again.  However, if he PM's me I will replace it.  It's my best DVD.

you see #12 for OU? He should not be playing defense.
Noy sure any of OU were playing defense.

It's funny this discussion comes up today... I was just thinking yesterday of the reasons why I'm so crazy about this game and coaching it. I'm a young guy and fairly new to the coaching world, but I guess the main thing I'm hoping to gain from the "coaching" experience is to positively impact a young mans life. Coaching in a very low income neighborhood is a difficult task but it's one that I wouldn't trade for the world. A lot of the kids we coach are very similar to the ones coach Potter described, lacking a male figure in their life. So if We can get through to at least one kid every season I feel we've accomplished something. Yeah, the X's and O's are great, the film study is great but the lessons the game of football teaches you about LIFE far exceeds X's and O's or wins and losses. This game will end for everybody but the lessons learned from football will carry on forever.

I try to explain to my 9 year old that one day playing football will end and it's all about taking what we learn while playing this game and applying to everyday life... right now he looks at me crazy lol but one day I think he will say " my old man was right". I know I did with my dad and previous coaches. Hell, my old man is my assistant coach to this day and still teaching me lessons.
