Has anyone out there ever been in a position as a high school coach to have to coach against your son's team...or coach a team while they were on a different one?  If so, would love to hear about it.

Been in that position for some tourneys. I always cheered against my kid. Kind of a running joke. "Rip his nose off!" Good thing the refs were kinda in on the joke. Smiley you have to make that clear.

I have coached against my kid more than once.

local middle school tournaments and he ends up wrestling someone from his own team.

I usually tell the kids to work it out on their own, I encourage drill matches for the first 2 periods and live both on their feet for the third if they are wrestling teammates.

My son doesnt care and I think deep down inside he feels he can beat any one I coach  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin I will say that when I point out to my sons opnent what my sons weakness are, my son usually doesnt show them during that match so I have to out think him in up coming matches Grin

I had to do this a handful of times.  It was difficult, but I had my assistants coach against him and I reclused myself.

I once considered becoming a recluse... but I didn't really want to withdraw from society or seek solitude, like a hermit.  Cool

My dad coached at our rival school for something like 18 years, and quit when I got into high school so he could come to my matches.  He was a teacher at the other school, so the wrestlers there gave him the business whenever they were going to wrestle me.  Grin

If you become reclusive and sit out in the sun too long you could become venomous from brown reclusiveness.

Tom,

I could see a hermit fitting you well.  But you would need to grow the beard out to ZZ Top proportions to look the part.  Oh, and also keep yelling at the neighborhood kids to get off your lawn.  But only yelling from the window behind a drawn curtain.  Never yelling from the front porch.  Very recluse.
