This isn’t about us trying to be the state’s unofficial hall monitor, because nobody makes for better hall monitors than high school coaches. No permission slip? Coach will have that kid skipping back to class pronto. Someone’s banging on a locker? Coach will end that noise.

The great ones make sure we don’t forget it the rest of our lives.
