More About Coach Brookins

Age: 51
Home Town: Fulton, Missouri
Coaching Experience:  28 years
Favorite part about coaching: 
"Assisting and inspiring youngsters to strive and achieve a level of success in all they do; teaching them to handle both success and failures with class and dignity."
Most memorable coaching moment:  Cape Central's double-overtime victory over the North County Raiders in the 2001 sectionals at Houck Stadium!
Coach or Coaches he looks up to:  "From the past, all my Junior and Senior High School coaches who made learning the game of football so much fun, particularly coaches Bob Fisher, Jim Wallace, John Henage, and Carl Lee.  From the college ranks, I've always admired how coaches like basketball's John Wooden (UCLA) and John Thompson (Georgetown) handled their teams with class and were such great teachers/motivators.  In the NFL, I admire the knowledge, poise, and ability to adapt to nearly any situation on the field demonstrated by the Patriot's Bill Belicheck."
Favorite Quote: "What you give, you have; what you don't give is lost forever!"
