Turchetta embraces past, relishes the future (06/01/12)
Tom Turchetta is entering his third year as the head football coach at Marshall County High School and 2011 was a program-changing season as the Tigers' squad took a giant leap forward, posting a sparkling 9-4 record and becoming only the fourth MCHS team to play three play-off games and the first since 1988 to have the trio of post-season contests at Preston Hopkins Field in Lewisburg. "That was tremendously satisfying and so different than the year before when I remember after getting the job and two days later, going over to Lincoln County on the bus, and I didn't even know their names," said Turchetta. "It has been great to see these kids buy in, how hard they try. You always form a bond with all your kids and I am very proud of all of them. But that senior class that just graduated, as sophomores were 1-9, as juniors they went through the coaching change and had something entirely different and went 4-7 and made the playoffs, and then last year they went 9-4, going to the third round, so they will always have a special spot in my heart."
