KJ Coach of the Year: Maranacook's Don Beckwith

...“One of the reasons I get accolades like this is because of my assistants, Phil (Mohlar) and John (McPhedran),” Beckwith said. “It really is.”

Beckwith hasn’t reinvented the game of soccer. Though there are elements of the German ‘gegenpress’ — sometimes referred to as Heavy Metal Football for its high-intensity characteristic — his game plan essentially boils down to three ingredients: Defend, pressure and put the team first.

It works, and it’s not changing anytime soon.

“It’s a pretty easy sell, because of the success we’ve had,” Beckwith said. “Success does breed success. I know it’s a cliche, but it’s true. Kids want to succeed.”
