Focusing on the positives
There are some things certain in life, of course death and taxes topping the list. According to Dave Johnson, Gloucester football ending the season in 10th place seems to be a given too. Granted, our history probably gives credence to his pick.
As the season opens tomorrow night in our stadium against Dave's number 1 pick and back to back state champions Phoebus, lets focus on the positives:
- Despite our history, our community continues to support the program in home attendance. Phoebus fans may consider it a pretty boring game and just too far to travel for this one.
- Coach Sonny Merchant is still here. Merchant begins year 3 and is driven by the motivating force to turn Gloucester football around. He has no hidden agenda and he's a solid addition to Gloucester High School.
- Despite the win/loss record, knowledgeable football fans can see improvement in player skill sets, team effort, and fortitude.
- The best changes come with time.
With the hopes that Hurricane Earl's threat level drops from medium to low, we hope to see you out at GHS stadium, 7 pm, Thursday.
