Football: Some high schools have more resources than others

February 28, 2013 |  1:00 pm

There are some high school football programs that have limited budgets. Then there's Buchanan High School in Clovis, where the community loves sports.

The school is advertising for a new football coach that includes two full-time teaching positions _ one for the head coach and one for an assistant.

Its field is where the state track championships are held.

There's a 9,000-seat stadium, a team room, a full-time trainer, a full-time athletic custodian, 16 paid football stipends, two on campus weight rooms, a teaching schedule that will include three weight training classes, a booster club.

Yes, I can imagine what anyone who works for a Los Angeles City Section school is thinking _ where can I apply?

The answer is

Good luck. Send me a postcard if you get hired.
