Ric Evans has no illusions about his new job. In taking over Hereford's football team, Evans inherits one of the most successful programs in Baltimore County - if not the state - from one of the best coaches to walk the sideline, Steve Turnbaugh, a two-time All-Metro Coach of the Year who guided the Bulls to three state titles and 11 state tournament appearances in 19 seasons. "I'm certainly not going to try and fill the shoes of the guy before me. He is a legend," said Evans, who spent the last eight seasons as a Hereford assistant coach and takes the reins Wednesday, the first day of practice for public school teams.

Succeeding Bob Ford as only the second head coach of the Albany football program might seem like a daunting task. But Greg Gattuso has some experience to lean on. Gattuso, Maryland's defensive line coach for the past three years, previously worked for 12 seasons as the head coach at  Duquesne. Gattuso said his biggest challenge is building a connection between the players and coaches, six of whom are new to the Great Danes. “I have no idea how our guys are going to respond to our coaches and how we do things,” Gattuso said during the recent Colonial Athletic Association media day. “I think they're excited about change, but there is a little unknown there.

Given his family background, it's easy to understand how Steve Salters got into coaching. What sets Edgewood High School's new head football coach apart from his peers, however, is his age.At 25, he is one of the sport's youngest head coaches in the state, but since his appointment last month, there have been more "How're you gonna do?" queries from his friends than comments about his age.One week into preseason practice, Salters is still feeling his way but he has ensured a measure of continuity from last year's 8-3 State Class 2-A playoff team by retaining the coaching staff, most of whom are also in their 20s."

As Franklin marched toward the 3A state football title last season, coach Anthony Burgos noticed a significant decrease in head injuries suffered by his players. "We had two concussions last year," Burgos said. The Indians coach attributed the improvement to his staff's adoption of techniques promoted by the Heads Up Football program, designed to teach better tackling technique, equipment fitting and player safety to combat concussions - and declining participation - in youth and high school football.
