Parr Bowl update

At lunch Wednesday I talked with Palo Duro coach Steve Parr and Caprock coach Seth Parr about their upcoming game. As a reporter I was hoping for talk of payback from Seth for Dad winning last year's game and maybe some chatter from Steve about showing the kid a thing or two about coaching. I was impressed that neither one made an issue of it, they both said it wasn't about them, it's about the kids on the field. That's one thing I've learned about coaches in my short journalism career, as much they would like to win they genuinely care about the kids they coach and want them to succeed on and off the field and the Parr's are no exception.
