from Reidsville(high school student), to Guilford College(college student), back to Reidsville(assistant coach/head coach), to Person County(head coach), to Eastern Guilford(head coach), to Thomasville(head coach) and now settling in at his new home at Page High School, we bring you the new head football coach for the Page Pirates, Doug Robertson…

Just a couple of things that Coach Robertson said when he was talking to the parents and the Page players and that was #1, “Defense First”…And the other thing Coach said that stuck out with me was, remember, “Be Marketable, not just Eligible”….

You have to be somebody that can market themselves to the college coaches that are looking to take the high school players to the next level…You must be prepared and ready as a student, that is where the eligibility comes in, but it is more than just having at least a 2.0 in the classroom, you must be a well-rounded student-athlete and one that the colleges would like to have join their programs…(You must maximize your opportunities as an athlete and become the best one, that colleges will be interested in)…

That is where the key part of Marketability comes in…You have the student, then there is a hyphen, and then the athlete(Student-Athlete)…You must have both parts, with the hyphen in the middle to make it stick/work…
