A week before the 2017 high school football season started I wrote a crazy Hot Joint entitled “Leader of Men” where I explained to boyz that Ben Davis head coach Mike Kirschner was the epitome of what a real head coach was supposed to be. It was just a few days after his star cornerback Rondell Allen had been shot six times. Durin’ their annual team picnic ole boy sat his team down and prayed over and with them for their safety and guidance.
Well playas…after the Giants beat the brakes off of their cross town rival on Friday night 45-16 he and Coach West from Warren Central brought both teams together at mid-field and he prayed for both teams. Warren Central lost last season’s M.I.C. Defensive Player of the Year in Dijon Anderson last spring to a shootin’ and Ben Davis almost loss Rondell Allen this summer to the same type of violence.
So coach’s Kirschner and West understand how real these streets are and wanted to put football in it’s proper place on Friday night. The fact that two coaches had the wherewithal to stop, bring their teams together after an emotional rivalry game and pray like Coach Kirshner said, in a public place is amazin’ and should be applauded.
Boyz wanna know why these two programs consistently win? It’s because the head coaches consistently love their players. You can’t coach a kid and win like they do without lovin’ them bruh. It’s impossible!! You spend too much time with them not to love them and when you love them they love you back. When a person loves you there’s not much they won’t do for you and if that means playin’ their hearts out for you then that’s what it is.
Trust me playa…when a coach dedicates himself to lovin’ his players those players become better people. There’s a reason why these two programs are sendin’ kids to college forty goin’ north. It’s bigger than football and it’s bigger than Mike KIirshner and Jayson West.
So I salute both of these coaches for settin’ the example for their teams and good luck the rest of the way!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
