Another week, another blowout, time to clean house once the season ends. It was a good run for the Fiorini staff, but the last 2 years have been an embarrassment, program needs a new face & new blood

Lapolla tried to get new staff. He actually tried to do something right. Fiorini was never a good coach. Even when he had good teams he was always outcoached. Not a football mind. You can tell he's bad check his sidelines during games. He lost Puleo and kept that clown Strife. Filletti gets it but can't relate to kids, and if your not a star well. Proctor always had talented kids at the skill positions, but never linemen. It is a challenging tough job, regardless. But it can be a good program. Kids respond to discipline. Asselta knows football but he's not coaching Ivy League kids. Keep it simple, and win.

The only football mind left in the district is Frasca. Keady is arrogant. And Henry is hated by Bruce. Palmisano gets every job, give it to him. Yea, right! He's a do-nothing and still gets paid slob. Bruce has no one in his circle that's competent. Unless Guido coaches football again.

My son played for Proctor a few yrs ago and here is my take on the situation:
-Varsity coaches do OK with the hand they are dealt.
-AA football in Section 3 is probably the best as a whole in NYS so winning is not easy. No free passes like in the smaller classifications
-The type of kids that play at proctor for the most part aren't easy to deal w or coach. Football is a structured game and the kids have no structure at home therefor football is a hard game for them to grasp.
-Lack of an offseason S&C program that the kids participate in regularly hurts.

-Real problem is and has been the JV program. Continuity is not there. JV coach runs his own offense, only practices 3 times a week, they don't block and tackle during practice at all.

Those kids at proctor are awful to deal with. They feel entitled. You can not motivated anyone especially kids. Look at the football teams captain. Does he help bridge the gap and structure the game for his teammates? This groups attention span is so poor I am surprised they last a whole game.

It amazing when Proctor had players like Smith, Semia, Giruzzi's, Russo & Preaster you never heard that the kids were lazy, not motivated, how difficult to coach them & the JV coach is to blame, but now when the coaches have to actually work with the kids or show proper technique, now you hear all these excuses, the same goes with the hoops program. Corcoran & Henniger have the same problems if not worst and they seem to do well year in and year out. Question to ask, if you were another school and looking to make a change in your program, would you hire any of the Proctor staff ?
