Adding to my resume
That will not be the case with the Cheetahs. This is a team of 3rd & 4th graders who just found out their assistant coach doesn't know a pick and roll from a box and one. Oh sure, I can knock down J's and take it to the hole all day long. I got crazy, stupid hops and can take a charge like a champ...but I'm just not sure I'm the fella for this job.
Griff had his first practice and the coach all but begged for someone to assist his coaching. The second practice had no one step up, and I was performing improvisational "comedy" for Steven Joseph Fuller...and a few others. (somewhere off in the distance I could hear the soft humming of Cat's in the cradle...I think it was Joe). Third practice comes around and I'm the schlep that steps into the coaching void.
A couple of things to note:
1. The team I assistant coached in State College, Pennsylvania? They're in the state championship this weekend.
2. The team I'm assitant coaching this year in the Dub C? So far...undefeated.
Coincidence? I think not
