PAWTUCKET â€” After practice on Monday, and before his contest against Shea High late Tuesday afternoon, Tolman High head coach Jack Couto explained to his players why they should be more than pumped up about facing their archrival, especially after the Tigers' move to Division I this past off-season.
â€śI told them I've been here five years now, and we've never beaten them,â€ť Couto stated. â€śI know we've had them in Injury Fund games, non-leaguers, even scrimmages, and they've always dominated. They were much better than we were, and that was it. Facts are facts.
