I am happy to notice that Minerva schools seem to be losing some of there problem areas.
First, Coach Yeagley so long and good bye, besides being a great motivational speaker and a very nice person, he was a last place football coach who got a position at to young of an age (because of the minerva political machine).At the end of his coaching his record only improved for two reasons, 1 he was more of a front man with other people calling the shots and 2 he was lucky to have talent like Drew to carry him along for one good year.
Second, Super Doug Marrah
Wow, hard to believe he makes the decission to leave after his quaterback son is graduated.
Talk about someone not in touch with his community.besides letting projects go ahead that where expensive and totally un-needed.
Not working with the comunity to bring youth sport programs together not apart(like letting local kids use feilds that their parents tax dollars paid for).And aiding in nepatism and the good ol boys club.He also allowed to much local and internal hiring from old students ,it creates a stale atmosphere and does not allow a school to grow.
So that leaves one more still there but hopefully soon he will get the message.And this would be the athletic director Spinell.First off I believe he needs to sit back and reflect on his position, If you wonder why just go to the athletic site on Minerva school web and watch the video he created for the parents of young athaletes to watch before the kids can play.
Talk about a upset PUBLIC EMPLOYEE, get over your self you do not come into are workplace because we are private we come into yours because you are a public employee over are kids(who are monors) to which we always have a the right to question and comment you or your staff anytime we want.Get over yourself get a thicker skin or do us all a favor and leave.If anything the comments and mannerism you display on that video should be changed and with a public apology.
Your atheltic programs are falling apart with less kids going out, a large part do to not putting time and effort into supporting youth programs that build for the future and the poor coaching choices that are never looked into or challenged (nepatism, names and so on )and yes it does happen every day!!!
and for the record I am not a parent who child gets cut or never plays, I have noticed alot of good people and their kids really get the run over by stacking teams , allowing parents to coach teen teams or letting people with no experiance be in control.
lets keep cleaning house minerva and let them know we are in charge of are childrens future not them!!!
You're right, perhaps the schools and larger community have failed you. I look to your spelling and grammar as evidence.
