I just wanted to let you know something about your coaching staff at Gainesville High School.
After the game against Gilmer High was over Friday night, the Gainesville team members were loading onto their buses. As they were preparing to pull away one of the coaches noticed some trash that had been throw out of the bus window.
The coaching staff unloaded all three buses and had the team members pick up all the trash around the buses before they pulled out. They explained to the student-athletes that Gainesville did not leave things like that behind when they left somewhere.
Not only does Gainesville High School and the community have a coaching staff that they can be proud of on the field, but they can be just as proud of the staff off the field and in the things they are teaching the student-athletes.
Athletic Director, Gilmer School System, Elijay
