Asking a high school football coach to âpreviewâ his team during the final week of preseason practice is really premature. Itâs at least a week too early for that. Besides, coaches only want to talk about known commodities. Sometimes it takes half of a season to figure out the identity of these embryonic football teams.
Coaches are always willing to talk about certain subjects: veteran players, team leaders, practice schedules, lack of depth on the roster âŠ thereâs a whole litany of subjects that coaches are dealing with as the summer begins to fade away.

After publicly hinting of a possible return to electoral politics, former Mayor Susan D. Menard raised the stakes Tuesday, filing preliminary declaration papers to challenge her successor, incumbent Mayor Leo T. Fontaine.
But the suspense isn't over. Menard may withdraw if she isn't showing satisfactory support among likely voters, she said.
âI'll be doing a poll,â Menard said. âAfter that I'll decide on my next step.â
WOONSOCKET â The sunny, warm weather yesterday should have helped to erase memories of Tropical Storm Irene, and that might have been the case were it not for the continuing power outages affecting area residents.
The stormâs aftermath was marked by food spoiling in refrigerators, businesses still waiting for the power to come back on, and residents seeking a respite from the dark of their homes at restaurants lucky to have been spared the loss of electricity.
The third week of preseason football practice offers high school coaches and players a chance to narrow their focus.
When Ricky Ledo reneged on his verbal commitment to Providence College back in January, the Providence native did so with the full backing of his high school coach.
Now that all signs indicate that Ledo plans to unveil his college of choice Thursday afternoon in the Capital City â sources tell Blackstone Valley Sports that Ledo will announce his intentions to become a Friar once again â this same coach believes that the ensuing months Ledo spent on the open market only aided the highly-touted recruit in researching and ultimately rendering a decision.
