|Scenery that never goes away|
When my daddy was the football coach at Tallulah High School, my older brother and I went hunting with him quite often.
When Daddy accepted his first college job, our hunting trips became less frequent. It was not that a high school coach works any less than a college coach, but there was an added season called recruiting. The season never ends in college. As a high school coach, your time is not consumed by the recruiting wars. The kids that you have in your school will be the kids who play for you and are the foundation of your program.
I guess that I could say that our lives changed when our daddy went into college coaching. I am sure that it was not a move of ambition that caused Daddy to accept a college head coaching position, but only one of financial survival. When I think of today's college coaches and their six and seven figure incomes, I just look heavenward and say, "Daddy, we could have been millionaires."
