Coach Easton will be missed tremendously by anyone who ever had the privilege of meeting or talking with him. I'm sure that he is looking down on all of us with a smile as we continue to plug away while we coach this great game that he loved so much. Rest easy Jerry!

He actually helped me out quite a bit when I had questions about 9 man football and some of the formations and defenses I was running, that was in the fall of 05. Great great man, with alot of knowledge, and was needed more up there, then down here:)
