Deer Park vs LaPorte ...
A couple fellow little league football coaches & I went Friday night and watched Deer Park beat LaPorte 20 - 16. What was really sweet & rewarding for me was watching about 15 players playing on a Friday night (and winning) an emotional game. In 1999, these kids were on my Pasadena Bear Senior team just learning the game & six short years later they have blossomed into solid starters, being the deciding factor in a pivotal game. I have never in my life felt prouder than when after the game these kids came to the fence & shook our hands, & visited with us, including us in their celebration. Theres nothing quite like those Friday night lights!
