Voltaire,Relative of who may I ask? I assume you mean the current coach? I assure you I have never even met her but I have lived in Mason County for almost 50 years. I never implied anyone was uneducated.
My point was/is that some people have an exaggerated feeling about this program and its role in student development. Mason County has graduated thousands of students in its existence and only a handful have been able to generate an income from athletics. However many have become very productive and contributed much to their new communities as thet escape a region that is standing still while a few parents live vicariously through their children.
Big time? ESPN?
Work for a cure to a dreaded disease, invent an energy saving device, help bring peace to others...then you can brag about being "big time". You have students who will graduate Mason to do these things. I'll get exited about them.
I have no compassion for the coach as she was well aware of the elevated egos in this county. She knew what she was taking on...
Be prepared to get excited then, we have a young lady the will graduate this year who is brilliant the last I heard she is going to be a doctor and do research. I am sure that many others are working to better mankind I just happen to be aware of this young lady. Oh by the way she is a very good athlete also. Do you have the number for ESPN, maybe CNN or another news outlet.
