Watch the raw interview with Wesley Football Head Coach Mike Drass
Dover, Del. – Wesley Head Football Coach Mike Drass has seen many of his former players convert to coaches in his 23 years in the position.
Drass’ former center, Mike Judy, is now the second year head football coach at Smyrna High School. Judy was a three-year starter, two-time captain and all-conference player under Drass from 1997-2000.
Now Coach Judy is coaching a special group of players at Smyrna. Before Judy stepped in as head coach the Eagles struggled at 2-8. The team quickly improved to 5-5 in his first year.
Now after winning the Henlopen North for the first time since 1969, the Eagles are getting ready to close out their historic 9-1 season in the Delaware D-1 state title game against the Salesianum Sallies.
You may remember another Smyrna coach who played for Drass in 2014.
“Actually coaching their linebackers is Luke Maginnis who started for us last year,” Drass said. “We’re really tied into Smyrna High.”
Drass, however, has ties to both the Eagles and Sallies.
“[Head] Coach DiNardo at Sallies, we both played for the same high school coach Joe Moglia who is the head coach at Costal Carolina now,” Drass said.
So who Mike Drass rooting for?
