And now a word from our friends ...

My sincerest congratulations to the entire staff of Scholastic Coach & AD--the "oldest and most prestigious" coaching publication in the nation--on your 75th Anniversary! This milestone is a testament to the invaluable services that this outstanding resource continues to provide for coaches, administrators, and most importantly, the athletes we all work with on a day-to-day basis.

On a personal note, I want to extend a very special thank you to Herman Masin--the very best in the world at what he does--for his mentorship and friendship for nearly 30 years. You are my hero, Mr. Masin!

And to Bruce Weber, whose fingerprints have been so instrumental in the class and professional style that Coach & AD has projected for as long as I can remember, a tip of the hat for your true love and respect for all that is positive with athletics. Thanks also, Bruce, for the friendship and courtesies you have extended to me since the late '70's. The same sentiments go out to Kevin Newell and Lamar Clark, two behind-the-scenes guys who provide a lot of the wind beneath Coach's wings.

On behalf of the thousands of loyal Coach & AD readers in several countries, our appreciation for being a great source of information, in addition to shining a positive light on athletics and the great people who unselfishly serve our young people.

Congratulations Coach and Athletic Director on your 75th. You have provided all coaches such useful information for many generations. The real winners of your publication are the students/athletes we serve. Thanks for the help.

Providing coaches and athletic directors with practical, useful information and help with the challenges of their positions in each issue for 75 years is an unbelievable feat and accomplishment. Not only does this longevity demonstrate success, but it was also obviously a labor of love. Congratulations to Scholastic Coach and Athletic Director on your enormous contributions and commitment to high school athletics.

It has been a rare opportunity, honor, and humbling experience to have been one of the privileged contributors for the past 30 years. During this time, it was obvious that Scholastic Coach was not satisfied with status quo and continued to grow and improve over the years. As the magazine enters the next 75 years, it will no doubt continue to greatly serve the professionals who are involved with high school athletics. Our programs and athletes are the real beneficiaries.

Congratulations Scholastic Coach & Athletic Director on your 75th anniversary! Your magazine has been so faithful in serving athletics in such a marvelous way. This is why the coaching profession is the best it has ever been. You all have provided great expertise, ideas, and encouragement. I just want to take this opportunity to salute Herb McCracken's idea of Coach and Athletic Director Magazine and to Herman Masin for the tremendous job he has done for so many years. Bruce Weber is the best ambassador any company could have. He has done so much for the coaching profession and has been such a special friend to all the coaching profession.

Thanks to Scholastic Coach and Athletic Director for their support of all sports, but particularly for the unbelievable job they have done in the promotion of intercollegiate football. There are a lot of ideas that we have gotten from the magazine that we continue to use in our program here at the Academy. Again, sincere congratulations on your anniversary! We know the next 75 will be even better. Enjoy!

Congratulations on your 75th anniversary! It has been nearly 30 years since I first talked to Bruce Weber about soccer and its role in scholastics sports. During the ensuing years, your publication has done an outstanding job of providing timely and useful articles concerning the teaching and coaching of soccer in the scholastic environment.


From all of us who work with soccer and have passion for the sport--"thanks for a job well done!"

It may be said that the long and solid relationship between Wilson and Coach & AD is based on one mutual premise: we both strive to equip all levels of athletic administration with the right tools to form successful programs.

The constant and inevitable changes in the athletic marketplace require that athletic administrators get their information from a trusted source. For 75 years, and the entire duration of my 27-year career in the sporting goods business, Coach & AD has been the very best source for industry information.

This magazine is the perfect balance of between timely, substantive, focused, and enjoyable information. I look forward to keeping Coach & AD at the forefront of my reading list for many years to come.

Thanks for everything, Dennis Grapentin

Football General Manager, Wilson Sporting Goods Co.
