SBC Coaches talk about discipline in life, football

The climate in football has changed.

Not just from and Xs and Os standpoint. But more with discipline.

Huron coach Tony Legando spoke at the Sandusky Bay Conference Preseason Media Luncheon at Sawmill Creek about keeping student-athletes on track and how it fits into building and maintaining a program.

Even the state's most popular coach the last decade -- former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel -- was forced to resign amid a scandal. That was in part because a handful of players received improper benefits.

Coaches who are successful -- not with wins -- can relate to kids and maintain discipline among their student-athletes, Legando told his coaching colleagues Monday morning.

Legando said his concerns are not with his Huron team, but with football in general.

"In my time, I'm seeing us lose more and more of the traditions, the old-fashioned discipline about football," he said.
