This is in part a repeat of an earlier Podcast. Host Fred Opie talks with one of the top high school coaches of all time, Mike Messere. He will complete 50 years of coaching in 2018 and retire thereafter. They talk about how expectation have changed since he built a culture of excellence in his hometown of Camillus New York. Messere and several of the players he has coached are in the National lacrosse Hall of Fame. In an extra coach Messere talks about some of the hardest hard-working players he has coached and the players who blossomed later in their careers as student athletes.
