Former Rockland High football coach Ed Mazurek dies at 79

...“He knew what he was doing, he was confident and he told us if we accepted his coaching, we’d get this done. And we did,” said Leonard.

Mazurek’s son, Rich Mazurek, who had an exceptional athletic career at Rockland High and Bangor’s Husson University, talked about his dad in a 2016 Bangor Daily News story.

“I was the manager of his football teams when I was little, so I was always in the locker room and my dad was known for the pregame speech,” said Rich Mazurek. “I can remember listening to him giving those pregame speeches when I was 5 or 6 years old.

“(The players) would come out of the locker room like a pack of crazed animals. He would have them so fired up, but the message was always that nothing’s going to be given to you — you’ve got to work, work, work.”

But Ed Mazurek was much more than just a football coach.

He also coached softball and was a well-respected politician. ... ies-at-79/
