I was reported in the Greene County daily world last week during the Southwest conference banquet at Eastern Greene High School. EG head coach/AD Joey Paridaen made the announcement. I wanted to add my thanks to Scotty for always taking the time to deal with my requests for interviews, stats, starters and just general football talk before and after games... Cougar Valley is never a great place to be got as Miner Broadcaster... hanging out in their booth in the midst of their fans.. lol.. but SCotty always went out of his way to make sure that I was taken care of!!! Congrats to you Scotty Helms! Paridaen announced that Scott Helms is retiring after coaching high school football for 37 years, including the last 23 at North Daviess. He said he played under Helms once as defensive captain of an all-star. “He's one of the better ones in the game,” Paridaen said. “Coaching young people is a blessing,” Helms said. “It's great to do it for 37 years and its been a blessing. When you follow God's will it's a blessing.” Helms pointed out he visited an Eastern school board meeting in the early Aughts when the school was trying to start a football program. He said he knew it would be established because of the determination of the Eastern boosters and parents. “I just want to say I wish I had had nothing to do with it because it was bound to beat us,” Helms joked. “You've got a tremendous program, tremendous fans, a tremendous community.” He said he plans to visit future conference games and yell advice to the coaches. http://www.gcdailyworld.com/story/2458925.html
