NEW YORK, NY - MAY 19: Chuck Cooper attends 2013 Drama Desk Awards at Town Hall on May 19, 2013 in New York City.
People expect us to take a couple of years to win. This team went 5-5 last year and has over 40 kids coming back. I want to win this year ... I want the community to believe in me and what this team can do.
If Independence can be second in the state in wrestling, they can be second in just about anything ... I mean that as a positive to coach Warden. These kids develop as wrestlers in the peewees. Let’s do that with football. Let me get the weight room built and we’ll build it up. I’m more than willing to work with the wrestling team, and they can work with the football team. It can only help us get stronger.More quotes »
