No Time to Look Back at Super Bowl for Sharon High Football Coach
With the well-deserved honors the Eagles are receiving, Sharon High head football coach Dave Morse has been pretty busy since the season ended.
Dave Morse hasn't really had time to reflect on his Sharon High football team winning the Division 3 Super Bowl over Wayland Dec. 1.
That's because in the 12 days since the final time clicked off the clock for the Eagles' first title, Morse has on a whirlwind tour.
There have been the tasks of getting the team ready for the off season, preparing for the 2013 season and accepting all the honors that come with being a Super Bowl champion.
"As soon as the season is over, we wanted to get into the weight room," he said. "We're also looking changing positions and organizing so we can get onto next year."
The Eagles have had their team banquet, received all-stars honors, including Morse being named as the Boston Globe's Division 3 Coach of the Year.
Tuesday, there was one more honor, which Morse expects to be the last one of the year.
He was named as the New England Patriots High School Football Coach of the Year, receiving a plaque and a $2,000 check for the program from NFL Hall of Famer and Patriot great Andre Tippett, a Sharon resident.
When CBS-Boston (WBZ-TV) airs "Patriots All-Access" Friday at 7 p.m., the Eagles will be featured.
As Morse is finding out, after you win a Super Bowl, the off season ready doesn't start for several weeks after the final whistle blows.
While the 26-year-old head coach is fine with all the honors his team is receiving, he doesn't want to be the spotlight by himself.
"It's good for the program," he said. "Honestly, I don't want to be singled out individually. This is because of the hard work of the kids."
During the season, sleep was at a premium as there was so much do and very little time to do it.
Now that Morse isn't holding practices and preparing for games, time still hasn't slowed down for him yet.
"It's been a crazy week," Morse said with a smile, Tuesday.
However, there are signs, though, that things will finally slow down for the coach soon.
Some of his players have moved on to their winter sports. While they will never be forgotten for their accomplishments, the seniors are moving out of the program.
"We're getting back to reality," said Morse with a smile.
