Even if their teams win big, head coaches of high-school football teams can still be the toughest critics of the performance. That’s because they know detailed things others don’t.
One such coach wasn’t all that happy after his team’s recent five-touchdown victory, saying “We played OK, but there were too many things we missed and didn’t do well.”
Another was also critical of “too many mistakes” and sloppiness in a two-touchdown triumph. He added there are many areas that need to be cleaned up, or losses might result if not.
And how about the coach of a team that won thirtysomething to nothing, allowing fewer that 100 total yards on defense? He wasn’t much happy at all.
Sure, he said his team’s win was a good thing and the players “played hard.” But there were multiple things and areas, individual and team wise, about the performance that bothered him.
Probably, no head coach is completely happy with any victory, no matter the margin of triumph. It’s just one of those things.
