I heard Coach Potter on a local sports show last Wednesday night. He was asked the typical question about the south dominance and why didnt Albuq schools win more titles. He is a good man to ask with his coaching backround. He said the lack of an athletic period hurts the Albuquerque schools, but he had good things to say about everybody.
I was at a RRHS game last year when Coach Potter and his assistants came to scout and sat close to me. As he was leaving I stuck out my hand to tell him good job and good luck. He didnt see it and kept walking, no big deal. One of his assistants wispered in his ear and he came back and walked about 5 rows back to me and apologized for not seeing me. Thats a good guy in my book!

I don't know the guy but when I worked in Carlsbad I heard the fans praise him a lot for what he did and why not he turned the Cavemen into consistent winners, that's not an easy thing to do either in Carlsbad imo.
Then his contract wasn't renewed there, politics I suppose but a good coach, if he can ever get past Mayfield a state title may be in reach.
