    A local story that ended up with coach suspended for shaking goalie:



    Nice catch by local prep writer to get photos.

    This happens more often than we would like to admit..... albeit maybe not in girls lacrosse.

    My football coaches, from Pee Wee through high school, used to grab us by the facemask and yell at us if we missed an assignment. It really never struck me as anything out of the ordinary or even bad.

    Same with me but it's a much different era where coaches are not expected to act like this.

    More like the Frank Kush of women's lax coaches.

    So that's what Jane Lynch does on the side when she's not on Glee.

    This coach doesn't look very discreet, but she'll probably still haunt my dreams.

    That's not the photo that really tells the story.

    There area couple others that are a little tougher.

  11. I'll say this: Bob Luckey of the Greenwich Time is one heckuva preps photog. The images on the link are great. This is prize-winning material.

    I think football was and still is different, just because you're slamming helmets into another player half the time. It's not unusual to see a coach screaming at a single player still. But girls' lacrosse would seem like an entirely different matter to me, since the sport is basically non-contact.
