My first impression of George Cottrell will also be my lasting memory of him.

It was early October of 2010 – my first full week on the job here – and Collins had just beaten Shelby County, 49-7, in the first football game between the two.

Only later would I learn that the exchange was more than just an assistant coach consoling a player after a tough loss. It was a father offering his son solace.
