Beyond The Scoreboard – Hold the Mayo

Beyond The Scoreboard Hold the Mayo By Eddie Fields, Teacher and Coach Space Coast High School, Cocoa, FL I love cheeseburgers…irrationally love the things. The best one I ever had came from a Mexican joint in Fayetteville, North Carolina. When I show up to a restaurant, I don’t even look at the menu. I order …

Beyond the Scoreboard – Sac Bunt, Sac Fly, Sac Apply

By Eddie Fields, Teacher and Coach Space Coast high School (FL) With a runner on first and second with no outs I looked across the diamond to see the signs our third base coach was giving to our hitter. The glance was obligatory because like everyone else at the park I knew that he would …

Beyond the Scoreboard-What Football Means to Me: Win or Lose : The Hard Way

  By Eddie Fields, Coach and Teacher Space Coast High School (FL) The other day my son was horsing around on our stairs. My wife, nervous, told him to get down before he hurt himself. He immediately said “Dad lets me!” (And, I do…) I am not sure she agreed in this specific instance, but …

Beyond the Scoreboard: What Football Means to Me—Win or Lose

I…CAN Handle the Truth After taking the season off from coaching football, I anxiously showed up to winter baseball workouts ready to roll. The reflections on relationships, especially with my son, afforded by a season-long retreat were rewarding, but the fall free-time lead to torturous amounts of boredom. I was a man without a team …

Beyond the Scoreboard: What Football Means to Me—Win or Lose

  Happy Holidays The Wednesday before Thanksgiving one of my good coaching buddies shot me a text. It said, “Hey, if Nathan wins Friday he will be in the MAC Championship and we should go!” I politely texted him back and said it probably wouldn’t work. With the holidays around the corner, flights would be …

Beyond the Scoreboard: What Football Means to Me — Win or Lose

 Players, Coaches, Angry Fans…Lend Me Your Ears Everyday exchanges in the football world carry a tremendous amount of variety in both message and motive. From the idealistic and hopeful messages in pregame speeches to the nonsensical mantras of disenfranchised fans, a quiet moment seemingly never surfaces. Most communication stems from the concurrent goals of molding …

Beyond the Scoreboard: What Football Means to Me – Win or Lose

The mention of love in society generally conjures visions of hearts and flowers, creating a Disney-like mental picture of romantic relationships. The masculinity and machismo often associated with the gridiron does not immediately surface in this affectionate imagery.
