My father in law coaches girl’s basketball.
He’s done it ever since he started teaching after he retired from the Marines over 20 years ago.
He tried to sit out a season a few years back, but took the next assistant job offered to him during that year. He said he was going crazy just sitting around.
He’s coached for quite a few of the high schools in North San Diego County, from the biggest and most athletically dominant to the small and struggling.
Tonight I went to watch him coach this year’s team. It’s a tiny private school located very close to his home. It’s very small, about the size of the small town high school I attended in Iowa where
my graduating class was less than 100.
