It's a job that is 24 hours a day,

season are all back. The problem is
that those five weren't always as
productive as they could have been -
and Sherman must find a way to help
them realize their potential.

KEVIN SHERMAN

If Sherman's past means anything
- the receivers will have record years.
As a high school receiver himself
Sherman wore number one and was a
Friday Football Extra star in the
mid-80s under one one of his mentors -
Norm Lineburg.

KEVIN SHERMAN

What he didn't learn in Radford -
he no doubt picked up in college at
Ferrum playing under the legendary Hank
Norton. His teammates included Chris
Warren - so Ferrum rarely threw the
ball - and players rarely strayed off
the narrow path mapped out by their
coach.
