    I think some of these kids may be concerned that the new coach is a little bit of a disciplinarian as compared to the previous regime. This young man probably didn’t get a chance to work with the new head coach, in his previous stint there.
    I think the new coach, if given the time will mold the young men into a good team, but it will take some time, and the fans will have to be patient.
