PROVIDENCE â€” After his Pop Warner football team, the Edgewood Eagles, won a national title in 2008, Shea senior Freddy Gobewole figured a similar fate would occur at the high school level.
It never happened.
While Gobewole was a top running back for the Raiders, the teams struggled during his career with just nine total wins, and no playoff appearances, the last four years.
To make matters worse, a dislocated shoulder, suffered during a scrimmage in August, kept him off the field for half the season this fall.
The majority of high school coaches are also full-time teachers. For these dedicated souls, the world of academia does not cease once the final bell rings. True, they may trade their lesson plans in for whistles and clipboards, maneuvering from one stressful environment to the next. In reality coaches are confronted with the same pressing matter that monopolizes their time and energy during the daytime.
