Storyline

Coach Jerry Brownell is down because his teams do not do well against other schools. He blames this in part on lack of school support -- even Headmaster Andy Thompson doesn't attend track meets. After Concord loses to Hubbard, 97-9, and to Linsday Academy, 81-3, Coach submits his resignation. Andy accepts it reluctantly, and at the suggestion of some team members, organizes a going-away dinner. At the dinner, members of the current track, football, and basketball teams, and football alumnus Art Schultz, all speak of how Coach may not have won many games, but provided valuable life lessons which were more important than winning. This, plus some earlier mild prodding to the same effect by Andy, convinces Coach to stay on. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>
