S2, E7 | Art Kehoe & Mark Evans
FTGOTG S2, E7 | Episode 7 demonstrates why the game of football and the coaching profession are a perfect marriage. Our conversation with Coaches Art Kehoe and Mark Evans is not just about University of Miami football. It's a celebration of the memories and respect two colleagues (former coach and player) can build and maintain!Coach Art Kehoe played as a 2-year letterman and Captain at the University of Miami. He began his coaching career as a Student Assistant for the Canes in 1981, while finishing up his degree. Art spent the next 20+ years working his way up through the staff at Miami, culminating with being the Assistant Head Coach & OL Coach from 2002 - 2005. He's had the honor and privilege of coaching All-Conference honorees, All-Americans, as well as Outland and Remington Trophy award winners...not to mention the 20+ players he coached and mentored on their way to playing in the NFL. Coach Kehoe was on the staff for all five of Miami's National Championships and he was appropriately enshrined in the UM Athletic Hall of Fame in 2002!Coach Mark Evans is a School Counselor and the current Head Football Coach at Manheim Township HS in Lebanon, PA. With 23+ years as a Counselor and High School Head Coach, he has accumulated a tremendous track record of success both on and off the field. The students and athletes who join Mark's "huddle" benefit from his experience, calm demeanor, as well as his confident, caring approach. Coach Evans' start in football was anything but typical, having played only his Senior year in High School. After graduating, he ventured to Scottsdale Community College in Arizona to hone his skills and seek opportunities. Mark's hard work and relative improvement garnered multiple D-1 offers, but he chose to join "The U" to pursue his college career. His friendship with Coach Kehoe began in Arizona during a recruiting visit and (as they say)...the rest is history!Regardless of how long they go between conversations, these two maintain a strong bond of respect for one another. Their relationship is emblematic of the trust and loyalty that is possible in the great game of football...two competitors learning and growing together, each changing the game...and the world in his own unique way!Intro music "Next Level" used under license by Composer Rujay Torres.
