My bad on the Rock Hill/NW coach mixup. I think Fogle was a northern boy which would answer the sweatshirt move (hockey). You pretty much hit the nail on the head 3rd and long. Your knowledge of the situation almost gives who you may be away. :D The players did attempt something, but it just didn't feel right. They didn't really have anything against Coach Clark, he had only been there for 2 years and I guess we were led to believe he had not been there long enough. His bark could be pretty tough at times. One of his favorite sayings we always mocked was "OK boys, this is live and in color". It wasn't what he said, it was how he said it. It was one of those things you had to be there to think was funny.

It's quite profound what a difference a coach can make to a team. Every now and then someone will quip that Dorman is successful primarily because of our new talent pool.

But the last 20 years tells a different story to me...

Dorman football pre-Fogle

Dorman football post-Fogle

Dorman football after Dave Gutshall becomes head coach

Dorman football after Gutshall also becomes Athletic Director for district 6

Dorman football after Gutshall steps down from AD to only coach varsity football

Am I confused about this?

Anybody ever heard of Lou Fogle and the "dew boys?" The "dew boys" were a punishment if you got in trouble at football camp. Fogle would make you get up early and jog up a hill in your jock strap and then roll down the hill. After doing this a couple of times, you had wet grass all over your ***, just in time for your teammates to come by on their way to breakfast.

I'm not sure this really happened but I'd wouldn't doubt it didn't. Heard that the team had played really bad on an away game and when they got back, yhe buses pulled into the gate and Fogle got everybody off the buses and made them push the buses up the road, up a hill to the gym at the old school. I was told that the whole time the boys were pushing, he had his foot on the brake.

Talk about coaching blunders. When Dorman was established, the powers that be went to find a certain coach. They were told that he would be at this place and when they got there, they started talking football with this man and hired him. Problem was, he was not the coach they were going after but he was Wade Corn, the 1st head coach @ Dorman.

Sounds like maybe Gaffney should bring Fogle out of retirement. What say you guys?

My best Fogle story......

It was 1980 and for some reason my Dad and Fogle had known each other from the ole days when my father coached.

Anyway, Fogle asked me to film Varsity games that year and i said yes. I was in the 8th grade that year but had experience filming and I guess he threw me or my dad a bone and asked me to help out. Now remember this is the ole days with big ole betamax video cams that weighed a ton.

I had torn my ACL over the summer and had the first of what would be 8 surgeries on the knee. By football season I was walking with a cane and a small cast / brace on the knee.

First away game of the season and we are playing at Gaffney. We get to the Reservation about 6:00 and unload the bus. Someone else carries the equipment and places it on the ground for me as I hobble off the bus. The team heads to the end zone to warm up and Fogle heads to the Gaffney locker room to shake hands with a Coach Curtis (??).

Fogle comes back out and sees me standing there with the equipment trying to figure out how I was going to carry all that crap all the way to the top of the press box. He looks at me, looks at my cane and cast and says "nothing wrong with your left leg is there ?" All I could say is no sir.

After the game he sent someone over to help me carry it down. I think he was more worried about me breaking the $5000 camera than me ripping my knee up again.

That season was the best in Dorman's history up to that point.

I don't think we can blame everything on the coaches during that period. By no means do they compare to Gutshall but they were not that bad. Coach Gutshall and staff have a very uncanny ability to get some amazing results out of less than stellar athletes at times. We have been very blessed with the group of kids coming through these past 3 years in the way they refuse to give up. Under weight and low in outright strength they still continue to fight till the whistle. As far as Fogle's "dew boys", I had the pleasure of being one 2 years in a row. Location was Mars Hill and we had a big hill beside our dorm. This punishment was for horseplay during afterhours. We were caught trying to put shaving cream into the hands of a sleeping coach. That punishment was usually non football related when I came through. Yes we were nothing but underwear or jock straps and it was before breakfast when it was still dark, 5:30 am or so. It was really pretty funny because we would be laughing the whole time we were snaking up that hill in that cold dew. :lol: :lol: :lol:
