Dude, I don't have a son who coaches. I just want to know why you feel it
necessary to give your negative opinions on here? You don't have to agree
with me, but if you want to trash hard working people, keep it to yourself.
What a shame that these coaches families and friends have to get on here and
read this trash. How about it? Want to give us your name, occupation, resume
so that we can rip on you even though we don't know you, and give you the
same treatment you put these guys through? Didn't think so.
The boards are for people's opinions. Sorry your son isn't a very good
coach. If you don't like it then don't read the comment boards. I
should have just agreed with your earlier posts instead of give my opinion.
How about putting your resume up for everybody to pick apart? This is the
problem with message boards. Keyboard warriors that make themselves feel better
by tearing everybody down. I'm sure you applied for the job, since you
are qualified enough to cast judgement on these two? These guys probably have
more of a positive impact on people in one season than you have in your entire
life. Why all the negativity?
Here is pearce's resume.Fired at SUU2 years at hunter and
quit1 year at granger and quit1 year at herrimanI could be off
on my years at each place, but it definitely isn't a great resume
Wilson is a good coach not great. Pierce hasn't done much yet besides bail
well said footballisgood. Coach Wilson is a great coach and Pearce sounds like
a great hire to continue the work...
Best if luck to him and Herriman. Sounds like a great hire.
If it pleases you, fine. But I have an issue with someone who acts like they
are so important and are owed an explanation. That said, Coach Pearce took
Hunter to the state semis as a young coach and had a huge impact on the lives
of a lot of young men. He changed the lives of lots of those young men, many of
whom may have gone down a bad path if not for his influence. He has coached at
the collegiate level as well. One of the Herriman coaches told me that he gets
called about every single opening around because he is so well thought of by
administrators, but he wanted to come to Herriman because that is where his kids
are going to go to school and he wants to be at their school.I never said
he was a better coach than Wilson, that guy is a legend. I am in awe of what he
has done at Herriman. I don't get why it is such a big deal to make a
statement about a guy that I think is a great hire to replace a legend.
Re football is good I disagree. You throw a big statement like the
one you did...@he is one if the best coaches in the state "...I haven't
heard not have ever heard of him mentioned in those circles. Doesn't mean
it isn't true, I don't know anything about his coaching resume. So by
all means, enlighten me. If u took the time to post it, u most certainly can
defend it. I am a HS football fan.
Coach Wilson should be recognized for his work in athletics, for sure. I want
to thank him and honor him for what he teaches off the field. His leadership
and focus on the classroom, making "Right" choices, and teaching boys
about becoming men, is so far above just athletics. Very sorry to see him not
at Herriman, however Larry Wilson is and always will be the FATHER OF HERRIMAN
FOOTBALL , Thanks so much Larry
Lonster, this is a board in which people are entitled to their opinions, so I am
not sure what makes you think that I need to justify mine to you with evidence?
That is my opinion of the man. If you knew him you would probably agree.
Trying to lump a discussion of two coaches in to "all coaches" is a bit
juvenile, don't you think?
Good Job Coach Wilson.Great legacy that you are leaving. Way to
go.I liked you as the D-line Coach at the University of Utah!!! Go
I don't know Coach Pearce, but I would like to take a moment to honor Coach
Wilson as one of the aforementioned "Best in the state". Larry won
multiple state titles as a coach and assistant coach. In fact, he has to his
credits state championships in football, baseball, softball, and even national
titles in rugby (He was an assistant on the now Hollywood famous Highland High
team). Coach Wilson sent many players on to college squads and even had four
players make the NFL, most notably Haloti Ngata of the Baltimore Ravens. Herriman is losing a great football coach and better human being. Good luck
in your retirement, Coach.
Coach Pearce was on the staff this past year and teaches at the school. Big
blow to lose Coach Wilson, but Dustin Pearce is one of the best coaches in this
state, and the remaining staff will support him fully.
Does the new coach currently work at the school or was he on Coach Wilsons
admin stepping in again and causing problems, someone should call them on the
carpet on occasion
