Do coaches normally coach both girls and boys? Like HC?
Coach Pratt of Harrison does.  It's why we have those 12 State champ and 3 State runner-up trophies.  I'm not sure but I think the guy from Wales that coaches PA girls also does the boys team.  They have 9 State champs and a bunch of State runner-up trophies.

The PA soccer coaches are brothers.  They help each other out when necessary.

Trick plays?  How is letting a senior O-linemen run the ball a trick play?

The other "trick" play was to throw a 15 yard lateral pass to a d lineman and let him throw back across the field to an o lineman, see if he can catch it and if he does, it's up to him to get 15 yards for a score. Both lineman are seniors and they try to let all the seniors score or throw for a score a TD at some point in their career. 1 in a hundred the play works, and it happened to. Another "trick" play was to pitch the ball to another senior lineman and see if he could gain 20 and score. He got 17.

It was for the seniors. It wasn't trying to run up the score. Had they wanted to run up the score, well.....

I know PA usually doesnít do that, thatís why it surprised me a little.  It just seemed to me with a minute and change left in a half where the visiting team was already demoralized by a complete whipping, that designing a play where a lineman scores is rubbing a little salt in the wound.  I mean, 57 points in the first half... wow!

But, itís just my opinion, no biggie.   And Iím sure that opinion was fueled by the fact that I had a little red rear that Alma was so obviously overmatched.  I was expecting a little better showing.

You are correct though.  The score couldíve been much worse had Coach Kelley not called off the dogs in the second half.  I was also thankful for the continuous clock.

Good luck going forward, but yíall probably wonít need any luck.  Thatís a very good football team.

17... that's too close! How many seniors haven't scored?

Two Sr. Linemen, one d line last week and one o line last night.  I believe three other seniors have ran plays but didnít get into the end zone.

I talked to the Alma team doc on the sidelines last night. He's been at Alma 29 years and is a good man. He said they bought I think 10 old greyhounds and refurbished them. Whenever Alma school kids go somewhere, they take those busses. 1st grade on up. He said those used busses cost less than a tricked out new yellow school bus. I think it's awesome.

The Alma fans and players were good people.

7th grade football takes those buses to VB. My daughter is ij the school district and they use them for any field trip. They are old and refurbished but when you have the players, band, cheer and coaching staff all rolling together on 4-5 of them itís a good feeling. Well it used to be from what I recall.

Not sure if you have heard but we are a soccer school now.
I was talking with an old Alma guy last night that used to be on this board. He went to the Alma game and said that Alma was severely over matched. He also said that the years of Alma being a football power have come and gone. I find this hard to believe because when Ole Frank was there everyone, and I mean everyone had to go through Alma to be conference champs. I wish Alma would get back on top of that hill. It was fun back in those days.

There will have to be change in the offensive coaching areas if Alma is ever going to go anywhere
Seems to be trouble in that area they can't even get the best players on the field, waste timeouts taking forever to call plays the list goes on.  We lost a game or two with better personnel on the sidelines watching.  Going to be rough times in Alma I'm afraid unless something happens.
