C Rob one of best recruiters in DMV. Big get for Locksley if that is true he's leaving Rutgers.


He is, but I think Aazaar is better, as a recruiter. But, if you aren’t keeping Aazaar, Corey is a great hire.

Heard Kyle's name floating around question is would DeMatha go outside the family?  What's the odds of Biff throwing his name in the hat?

Can’t see Biff going that route. Would be interesting, but don’t see it happening. Don’t believe Biff would want to leave the local area everyday. He is comfy in the Bmore area.

They didn’t play Gorman, played St. John’s Bosco. Was at game. DeMatha was much bigger, but the coaching and play making of Bosco was in another level. They have speed everywhere and only reason DeMatha scores, was because of busted play. DeMatha will have to start the ninth grade kid at QB, because their current QB can’t pass.

You have to be able to score points to beat the Top SoCal teams. They run their programs like college programs. That’s why I say that SFA will have serious issues with Mater Dei. SFA will have the talent and size advantage, Mater Dei will be more prepared and will be able to score against them.

via Coach Eric Wallich:

It is with great sadness and much reservation that I have decided to resign as the Head Football Coach of Damascus High School. The past twelve years at Damascus have been some of the most rewarding and best times of my personal and professional life but I have come to a crossroad and feel I need to make a change for myself and my family.

 

I have been thinking about this decision for a long time and this has been one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make. There are so many reasons I want to remain and stay as Head Coach at DHS. My main reasons are that I love the players, coaching staff and program so much. Damascus football runs so deep in my blood and has been part of me for 30+ years as a player and a coach. Damascus has been the best place I could ever imagine to grow up, go to high school, play football, and then come back to teach and coach. The memories and friendships I have made will be with me forever.

 

All my life I’ve wanted to have the same positive impact on kids as my coaches had on me growing up. I have tried to use football as a vehicle to teach the players some life lessons that I hope will make them better men. I have tried to get across that through discipline, hard work, and teamwork they can accomplish anything they want in life. I love these boys like they were my own sons and I have always tried to treat them that way. There are two types of success in coaching- success on the field which is measured by wins and losses and success in making them better people off the field. I am proud of the success we have had in my tenure as the coach at Damascus but I am even more proud of the young men I have seen grow as people over the years.

 

Although I identify a huge part of myself as a coach, I identify as a husband and a father first. I will always put my family as the biggest priority in my life. Our family has invested everything we could into this and all of us have a very heavy heart about this decision. My twins are currently in 8th grade and will be entering high school next year. They have literally grown up going to football games every weekend of their lives in the fall for 13 years and love it as much as I do. My son plays football and wrestles and my daughter plays lacrosse and field hockey. I want to support them every way I can and watch them compete doing what they love. Being the Head Coach and putting in the time and energy it takes to run a top program would require too much of me and would make this impossible. I have already missed many of their games, and would miss even more of their events at the high school level. My family has supported me all this time and it’s time for me to do the same. I need to be more of a dad and less of a coach and this is the main reason for my decision.

 

This journey wouldn’t have been so special if weren’t for the incredible players I have coached over the years and the wonderful parental support. I’d be remiss if I didn’t especially thank the incredible assistant coaches that have helped so much over the years. This coaching staff is something that means the world to me and I believe it to be the best in the state. I have made many great friends and built many wonderful relationships over the years with coaches, parents and players that I hope will continue to prosper and grow in the future. The future of Damascus football looks bright and the underclassmen and youth league are filled with talent. I will do everything I can to ensure DHS selects the best coach possible and hopefully one that will continue the traditions that have been in place for 30+ years. If you or your son ever needs anything, please don’t hesitate to call me. I will remain a teacher at Damascus HS and will continue help players with recruiting, weight training or anything else I can do to help in anyway. Remember, “Damascus football isn’t something you do, it’s something you become!”

Was just thinking that is a great reason to step back. Wonderful parenting. Be there for your kids.

After the crap he’s had to put up with, he gets to leave on his terms. Great coach, but most of all great mentor for young men.
