Al Brown knew he had his work cut out for him when he took the head football job at Garey High School 17 or so months ago.
The school hasn’t fared well in athletic circles recently, the exception being soccer. The feeder system isn’t exactly strong and the athletes it has drawn haven’t been well-versed in the sport. So right now he’ll take the small victories.
Brown is optimistic, as all coaches are this time of season. A year ago there were just 50 players in the program so the school didn’t field a junior varsity team. That number has swelled to 100 this year. That is reason enough for hope.
