Football: Canyon Springs coach trades his whistle for rattle

April 29, 2008 |  2:32 pm

I've changed a few diapers in my day, tossed a few shirts that were permanently stained with slimy spit up and watched "I Love Lucy" reruns at 3 a.m. with a milk bottle in one hand and a remote control in the other.

Wouldn't pass up the experience for anything.

That's why I commend Richard Bancroft for his decision to give up his position as head football coach at Canyon Springs in order to spend more time with his young son, Asher, who was born April 17.

He'll have plenty of time to get back to coaching, but you rarely get a second chance to raise your young children.
