|"It's the most wonderful time of the year . . . "|
Today is March 1st - opening day of the high school lacrosse season in Philadelphia. It also means that I'll be spending even less time at home now, since I am still coaching at Northeast Catholic High School. Unfortunately, my time with the lads has been curtailed due to my promotion, but I'll be able to help out on days off.
Last year was a rough one. We were well under .500, and missed the playoffs. Luckily, we have most of our impact players returning this season, so maybe we can turn things around. Coaching is a lot of work. It's fun work, but work nonetheless. By the end of most seasons, I don't want to see a high school kid for months. By March 1st, I'm energized and ready to get back into the fight.
Gentlemen, start your engines!
