“We had 17 players on the team and they showed up for practice every day,” said Steve Alves Jr., the West Warwick native who began his coaching career at Shea High in 1989. “It’s a good thing our coaching staff was a bunch of young guys because we had to get in there and practice with the kids so that we would have enough bodies to hold a full scrimmage.”
