Northern Little League manager Randy Morris, who took two Columbus teams to the Little League World Series, is headed to the high school level.
Morris told Ledger-Enquirer reporter Chuck Williams he's headed over to Northside to work as a community coach. Check out the full story here.
It's possibly a coup for Northside as many of the Northern players from this summer's team are in seventh and eight grade.
Northside coach David Smart told Chuck:
“To be honest with you, that would be a great benefit if that happened,” Smart said. “But I want him whether any of those guys come or not.”
And, hey, Morris could well be testing the waters for a job as a high school coach. He told Chuck:
“I have thought about being a high school coach, and I want to get into this and see if it is something I like,” Morris said. “I don’t know if that is something I would ever pursue, but I would certainly never close out that option.”
