COACH’S CALL

By Bruce Meadows

The Coaches Spotlight ­– Their Views on Realignment, Favorite Players, Favorite Teams and More

Is there anything about today’s game that is actually better than it was 15 or 20 years ago? Kirkpatrick: The use of technology and the ability to show kids right away what happened the night before. I remember the old videotapes that we’d take to the

Tom Kirkpatrick , Healdsburg

SPOTLIGHTS

Kirkpatrick: As our own numbers (enrollment) shrink, I would consider realignment because competitive equity is so important. I would combine the SCL, NBL and MCAL and create three divisions. When somebody wins a league year after year, it’s time to consider some alternatives. Arterberry: I would be behind (realignment) 100 percent. It would be ideal for us. You could monitor teams for five years and then make additional changes if necessary. I’m not sure if the principals would go for the travel, but I think it would help us and allow us to field a frosh team. ELLISON: The idea has been kicked around for 15-20 years, and we’ve even had meetings about it. Initially there was a lot of interest, including the Marin schools, but their commissioner was against it. There could be three divisions, and as far as the playoffs, the winner of each division would qualify for NCS. In the SCL, we have schools with 750 students and some with 1,900, a big discrepancy. We were in the NBL but our enrollment dropped so we moved to to the SCL and Piner, whose enrollment was growing, went to the NBL in 1985. Travel is a consideration, but I think it would be worth taking another look. Cronin: Do it like (European) soccer with an A, B and C divisions and teams move up or down every two years. This would give teams a chance to improve playing against schools of similar size. I don’t think it will happen though, mainly because of transportation costs, but I could see an A league with Novato, Marin Catholic, Montgomery, Rancho Cotate and us and a couple of others. O’Meara: The NCS has realigned with five divisions and we need to let it run its course. I do think NCS should add more teams to the playoffs so more schools get a chance to compete. We studied this a lot in the past, and what happens is that a school has a great group of kids come through then move on, so there are no guarantees a good team will stay that way. Besides, with all the top teams in one division, they would knock each other off and that would affect records.

police station to have developed then get it back Tuesday. Arterberry: Athletes are bigger and stronger, but I think maybe kids were a little tougher overall in the past. I think a lot of coaches haven’t kept up with the game so some of the older ones have gotten out. Ellison: The game is more sophisticated on both sides of the ball; it may not be better but it is more complicated. Offenses have changed a lot, so it is more challenging to come up with a defense. But training, including personal trainers, and nutrition have made a difference and a lot more kids are into conditioning. I think there is more of a me-first attitude than in the past. Cronin: Open offenses are better, more versatile. You have to be better prepared on defense. O’Meara: The biggest thing is the offenses. In the past you could win a game, 14-7, but now you have to score more points. Offenses are much more prolific and tough to defend and year-round practice has had an effect on players, especially those at the skill positions.

Superstitions? Kirkpatrick: I think most coaches and players have them but don’t admit it. I’ve worn the same socks or undershirt for a season. I have a black one from the first year I coached. I also got in the habit of getting a chocolate shake on Fridays when we play. Arterberry: I don’t think so...I like to work on things I can control, but yeah, I did have a hat I wore all the time before it starting falling apart. Ellison: I’ve gone through a lot of them in 42 years. Sometimes what I eat or what I wear but nothing really crazy. I remember one kid who wore the same t-shirt all season, and nobody wanted to get near him. One year we had a kid forget his game jersey and we had to borrow one and we lost. Six years later, same scenario only a kid forgot his pants; Mick (O’Meara) let us borrow a pair of pants and we were convinced we would lose, but we won. So much for superstition, right? Cronin: We set goals but don’t really have superstitions. Some guys eat dinner at the same place the day of a game, and I remember Ed Lloyd always wore the same suit. Some people have certain things they do but maybe that is more of a routine, not really a superstition. O’Meara: Mike Mulas (longtime assistant coach) buys me a pack of (Trident) gum before each game. I think there are a lot more superstitions in baseball. (continued on page 7)

What are your thoughts about realigning the SCL, NBL and possibly the Marin Country Athletic League?

Corey Turner

If you were in charge of large-school high school football in the North Bay, would you like to see things stay the way they are, or might you have realignment on your mind? We put this question to some veteran coaches from the North Bay League and Sonoma County League, as well as a few other questions on other topics. We talked with Sonoma’s Mick O’Meara, Cardinal Newman’s Paul Cronin, Petaluma’s Steve Ellison, Elsie Allen’s Larry Arterberry and Healdsburg’s Tom Kirkpatrick and got the following responses:

Kirkpatrick: I’ve had a lot of kids that were special, and not just for how well they played. We had one kid on the team the same year the film Rudy came out and he was our Rudy. He was not very athletic, but was always at practice, took a beating every day and was always ready to help you any way he could. My favorite teams are the ones that overachieved. One year we got beat our first two games and parents were hammering on us, but we went on to win nine in a row. Arterberry: I had a big (6'6") QB named Luke Zoeller. It was strange, but he knew what I was going to say before I said it. He never missed a practice and was a great kid. My favorite team was the one in 1996 when we upset Newman 16-7. We were terrible in practice that week, but then found a way to beat Newman in what a lot of people consider the biggest upset in history around here. Ellison: Not a year goes by that I don’t have one of those special kids, not a star or even a starter, just a kid who works hard. You never see their names in the newspaper but I have always had so much respect for them. Their presence is critical to our success, much more than most people realized. I remember a lineman we had who was so out of condition he couldn’t run the width of the field when the season started. He lost in every drill in practice but kept working to get better. Toward the end of the season, he had become a decent

player, we got him in some games and he even recovered a fumble. Cronin: Every year you have kids with whom you build a special relationship. You just seem to click. I had a backup QB named Luke Fay, really laid-back kid, but he understood what I was trying to coach as well or better than anyone. When I was trying to teach something, I knew Luke would always be one of the first to get it. “Our 2004 team was awesome, even though we lost our last game to Montgomery on a Hail Mary. No trophies or league title and not the most talented team, but special in how they played their best. Our 2006 team that lost to Oaks Christian in the state finals was a great team but that year was a grind.” O’Meara: “When I came to Sonoma, we had one kid whose skills were marginal, but he wanted to be on the team, not be the manager, so we made him the backup holder and he cherished the job. We won a title when he was on the team and he was a part of it and that meant a lot to him and the rest of us. Our 2000 team was special because nobody thought we would do very well but we surprised everybody. The seniors on that team—including Tony Moll—I had in biology as sophomores and chemistry as juniors. It’s always nice to win a lot of games, but sometimes that 6-4 season can be very rewarding if it is what I call a “good 6-4.”

COACH’S CALL (continued from page 5)

FAMILY MAN By Bruce Meadows He’s only 17 years old, but Mario Lara has become the man of the house. It’s improbable Lara, a senior at Elsie Allen High School, will see as much playing time as he’d like on the Lobos’ football team, nor is it likely you will read much about him in the local papers or see his name on any postseason, all-league teams. But Lara is already a hero to a lot of people, not the least of which is Elsie Allen football coach Larry Arterberry. Lara, an offensive and defensive lineman, came to Arterberry at the end of school last year and told him that he didn’t think he would be out for football this fall because he needed to work to help his family. “He knew what he had to do when it comes to his family,” said Arterberry. “But I told him to come out and we would find a way to make it work.” Lara, who started working at Oil Stop in Rohnert Park at the start of the summer, decided to do what he could

to play football as well as maintain his grades and hold down a job 20 hours a week. “It was a tough decision to tell the coach that I might not be able to play,” said Lara, who lives at home with his mother, Mirella Alcarez, and a younger brother and sister. “I felt I was letting the team down.” Lara’s decision to take a job was based in part on the financial needs of the family, but also because it was a way to help his mother. Mirella works at a grocery store in Sonoma, often leaving the house at 5 a.m. “She works hard and has a long drive,” said Mario. “I get the kids ready for school and watch out for my little brother (age 4) and little sister (14).” Arterberry and Mario have worked out a schedule to fit around his schoolwork, his job and football. “I usually make two practices a week, and then the game,” said Lara. “I love playing football, but I was willing to give that up for my family.” He said he felt a little uncomfortable at first, thinking his teammates might not understand the coach letting him play, even sparingly, despite the fact he didn’t make it to many practices. “I hoped they would understand, but then I knew it was OK if they didn’t,” he said. “A lot of

other players have problems of their own, so I hoped at least some of them would know what I was going through.” Mario’s weekdays are obviously busy. He gets up early to help his little brother and sister get ready for school. And because his mother works long, hard hours, he doesn’t mind helping out in other ways. “I like to help around the house,” said Lara, who works four days a week. “I know my mom appreciates it.” When Lara finally makes it home at night, either from work or football practice, he musters up the energy to do his homework. “If I don’t to my homework right away, I pass out,” said Lara. “And when that alarm goes off in the morning, sometimes it feels like I just went to sleep.”

“Regardless, I think he wants to continue his education, because he knows that’s important, and he’s a competitor, in the classroom and on the field.”

“Mario works hard and his family comes first,” said Arterberry, in his second stint as coach of the Lobos. “I’ve had other kids in similar situations, but Mario’s situation is pretty unique.” Lara tries to maintain his grades, because his plans don’t include ending his career when he graduates in June. “I’d like to go to Santa Rosa JC, then transfer somewhere,” said Mario, who played a lot at defensive tackle and on special teams in Elsie Allen’s opening loss to Hogan. “I think what I end up doing in the future will have something to do with working on cars and engines.” He said he has strived to get to a 3.0 grade-point average, and his teachers at Elsie Allen have been supportive. “I think they understand what I am trying to do, and I appreciate that,” he said. “They help me with the things I need.” And, he added, sometimes when he gets to school tired, his teachers often provide him with the motivation to keep going. Arterberry knows that only having Lara two days a week can create problems when it comes to learning the offense and defense, so he tries to play him in situations where he is familiar with the schemes. “He’s a very coachable kid, well-mannered,” said Arterberry. “When he can make it to practice, he works hard and does whatever we need him to do.” Arterberry said the fact the Lobos are using the same offense this year as they did in 2008 makes it a little easier. “At first he didn’t know how the other kids would react to him because he wasn’t there all the time,” said Arterberry. “But they know he can’t be there as much as he would like to and they accept that.” Lara doesn’t know if he will try to play if he moves on to SRJC, but Arterberry thinks the 6'1", 210-pounder should try, if he can find the time. “He has the physical size and knowledge to keep playing,” said Arterberry. “Regardless, I think he wants to continue his education, because he knows that’s important, and he’s a competitor, in the classroom and on the field.” Arterberry remembers the end of school last year, when Lara told him football may not be part of his future. “I told him I did not want him out of football,” recalled the coach. “I would never tell him he couldn’t play.” Arterberry said football is good, maybe essential, for a young man like him. “He has good grades, is a good football player and he’s trying to have a social life in addition to helping his family,” said Arterberry. “How could you not want to work with a kid like that?” Arterberry said he would rather have a young man like Lara, even on a limited basis, than to not have him at all. The end of football season will not mark the end of busy days for Mario Lara. He wrestles and also plays rugby, and if he can continue to live his life at the hectic pace he now does, he will do it. “So, I am the man of the house and that’s fine with me,” said Lara. “Maybe I’m unique, but I do feel like I am doing some good, and I want to keep doing it as long as I can.”

The Cardinals will have a hard time topping last season’s accomplishments. Although inexperienced at many of the key positions, they will mature quickly by playing a challenging preseason schedule. Consistency on the offense and defensive lines will be the key to their success if they are to repeat as NBL champions.

It’s not talent the 2009 Lobos lack, it’s depth. With several returning experienced players and another year under coach Arterberry’s system, look for the Lobos to play hard, play together and improve, even if it doesn’t show up in the win column.

Never count out the Cougars. They are young and inexperienced, but a great off season conditioning program and a willingness to learn will be their strong points. Rancho Cotate currently has three former kickers playing in college.

An NCS playoff team a year ago, the Analy Tigers will be a long shot to return in 2009. They are extremely young and inexperienced with only four returning starters. As with many young teams, their fans can expect a roller coaster ride with many highs, lows and everything in between.

The Hounds are very young with only three players with varsity experience, but that shouldn’t slow them down as they have brought up several players from a strong JV program. With the same group of coaches for the last 15 years, look for Healdsburg to gel quickly and become a factor in determining the winner of the SCL in 2009.

The Dragons have a rich football tradition. They are well coached and known for playing undersized. Having lost the two-time Press Democrat Empire Defensive Player of the Year, and a half a dozen all league players, Sonoma is going to have to rely on some new faces if they are going to contend. Side note: All The Sonoma coaches are former Dragon players.

There is no doubt the loss of Cameron Erion is going to be a huge hurdle for the Jaguars to overcome. However, with a host of returning starters, a good young crop of the JV players, Windsor still can contend in the SCL.

THE POINT AFTER POSITIVELY LP

Lawerence Phillips has trained some of Sonoma County’s top high school athletes over the last decade. His students have gone on to play at top Division I schools and some have even gone on to the the pro ranks in their selected sports. While the art of training has always been an intergral part of a sport, the mental side of the game has received little attention by many trainers. LP, as he is known by his clients and friends, has put equal emphasis on the physical and mental side of being a successful athlete. Listed below are five books and movies he recommends every athtlete read or watch.

Must-read books for all athletes, parents and coaches: • The 7 habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey: Book and Personal Workbook • The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle • Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections On and Off the Court by John Wooden • “A” for ATTITUDE by Julie Davey • The Confident Athlete CD/Workbook Series by Patrick J. Cohn, Ph.D. Note: All books can be Googled and purchased online.

Must-see sports-related inspirational movies: • Peaceful Warrior • The Express: Ernie Davis Story • The Heart of The Game • Rudy • Coach Carter Note: All movies can be seen on Netflix.
