Coach what has been your back ground in the last few years leading up to you taking the job at Lassiter?

What was something you wanted to address at Lassiter as soon as you got there?

Coach Lindsey-" We had to change the mindset and make the kids believe they could win first to have any success here.

We also need to increase numbers. It was 67 players when I got here and last year we dressed 101."

Did you do anything different this offseason?

Coach Lindsey-" Basically we just made sure that the kids we had this offseason were committed to us and would be with us in the 09 season.

We want to make sure they know this is a special place to play football and they are held accountable for their actions on and off the field. I think our kids have bought into that because we finished spring with 128 kids."

What is it like coaching a player like Hutson Mason?

Coach Lindsey-"It is a great thing and a coaches dream. He is just like having another coach on the field. He is a tremendous competitor and that drives him. He takes everything serious and he just a tremendous player to have running the offense."
