Too early to predict, says area coaches

August 30, 2011

Asking a high school football coach to “preview” his team during the final week of preseason practice is really premature. It’s at least a week too early for that.

Coaches are always willing to talk about certain subjects: veteran players, team leaders, practice schedules, lack of depth on the roster … there’s a whole litany of subjects that coaches are dealing with as the summer begins to fade away.

But the suspense isn't over. Menard may withdraw if she isn't showing satisfactory support among likely voters, she said.
“I'll be doing a poll,” Menard said. “After that I'll decide on my next step.”
