GLENDALE — In the step-by-step approach that Coach Alan Eberhart is taking in his hopes to rebuild and revitalize the Glendale High football program, one of many changes and improvements from last season to this spring is simply the steps it takes for the coach to get to his Nitros.
"It's much easier, I've felt very at ease. It's nice, my room's right there," said Eberhart, pointing to his classroom right next to Moyse Field. "I just walk right on to the field. It's been a nice transition."
A year ago at this time, Eberhart was still teaching at Crescenta Valley High and scrambling across town to Glendale for spring practices with a cast of players unfamiliar to him, his coaching style and his coaching schemes.
Eberhart admits last season, in every which way, was a more difficult endeavor than he anticipated. But things are vastly improved from then and now.
