December 15, 2011

WOONSOCKET — George Coderre likes to sit on the bench during Woonsocket High basketball games and let his players, usually his point guard, run the offense, calling out which plays to run against a specific defense.

In games, I try to sit down and just let the players feed off of each other. I do make some noise during games but I try to let the kids recognize defenses and call their own plays.”
