The news last week in high school football was Gordon Walters’ resignation at South Brunswick to become the football coach at White Knoll in South Carolina.
The bigger news for Walters came a day later, Feb. 19, when wife Stephanie gave birth to daughter Avery Sloane Walters.
“Eight pounds, 12 ounces,” Walters said. “21 inches long.”
It’s hardly surprising for a football coach to remember measurements, but at South, Walters succeeded because he blended football strategy with a family atmosphere.
