Tide Brings Ball Home

Posted: Updated:
BARRE, Vt. -

The 2011 season was a zero-win season for Spaulding. That's a tough number to face for any high school athlete. These struggles prompted a change of the Tide, bringing a former Spaulding star back into the fold, returning the record-setting college and pro-wide receiver David Ball, to coach his old team.

Coach Ball says he's not just focused on football, but on teaching players how to have a positive attitude on the football field. His goal is growing confidence in each player, and starting the season off winning at North Country helped his cause. It was the Tide's first win in more than a season. But there are lessons to be learned from losing too. Spaulding worked at this week's practice to bounce back from a 40-point loss to Colchester.

The Tide off to a 1-1 start, and ready for week 3, rolling a new era of Spaulding football onto the turf, with their hometown football hero at the helm.
