Shootin' the breeze...
By Robert Przybylo
Not everything a coach says can fit in the paper. Not because it’s profane or anything. It’s just, you know, sometimes, you can’t fit it in.
In talking with both Lawton coach Randy Breeze and Southeast coach Michael Branch, the two delivered a couple of gems I did not want to leave out.
Breeze: “District 6A-1 is like the Big 12 South. Everybody is so good that we’re just beating each other up. The downside is that a couple of real good teams won’t make the playoffs just like a couple of teams in the South will have more losses than they should have. But you want that. You want that tough schedule because you learn a lot about your team.”
Branch: “The kids are buying into our system. It’s like talking to that pretty girl. You practice in front of the mirror and you do it over and over. You feel confident about it. But then the opportunity comes, and you get flustered. That’s us right now. We’re doing all the right things in practice and working hard but during the game, we’re just making a mistake here and there.”
It’s fun for writers to hear coaches say stuff besides the usual “limit turnovers and make some plays and worry about ourselves and not the other team.” While all those may be true, I like a coach who is willing to have a little fun, too.
