former players gathered in the bleachers of Rake Field reminiscing about
the glory days. Some told stories of how they wanted to kill their coach,
Eddie Rake who was the meanest, cruelest man that these men knew. Yet some
debated and said how his cruelties and mean disposition brought out the
best in his team. The town of Messina was built around this man and would
do anything Coach Rake said. What will they do when he dies? (Michael Allen,
Mansfield High School)
