The Unsung Hero

Written by Willa Dyer

Most of you know the well-known name, “Coach Dean Fabrizio” in our small town of Lee County. He is the head coach of our Lee Co Varsity Football Team and has worked extremely hard to train these exceptionally talented guys this season, but who most of you don’t know is the Unsung Hero who does all the background work. Mary Katherine Fabrizio has been married to Coach Fabrizio for 13 years. She has been there from the start supporting him and raising their two children Eliza and Nicholas Fabrizio.

Mrs. Fabrizio says her most important job as a football coach’s wife is, “holding down the fort” for her husband while he’s at work. The Fabrizio’s don’t get to share a lot of family time but they do get “a free week off on 4th of July and it works pretty well because it coincides with [her] birthday.” One of the hardest things about being married to a coach is, “the time he has to spend away from his family.” Although it’s hard without Coach Fabrizio being there all the time, she does love being able to go to all the games to support her husband and his team.

Mary Katherine Fabrizio has a lot of important tasks she must do daily for her family. She has had to sacrifice a lot of things that she once loved to do for her husband and children. She also doesn’t get to spend as much time with her husband as she necessarily wants to. At the end of the day she gives up a lot to be the wife of a very talented football coach, but when it comes down to it, she wouldn’t trade what she’s been blessed with for the world.

Ever since Lee County’s intense and exciting win against Coffee County last Friday, everyone has been hyped up about the upcoming game. The Trojans had a tough loss the Friday before but the guys had an outstanding comeback with a win of 23-7. The team has spent many hours preparing for this moment in the season and they played outstandingly throughout the whole game and not once gave in. The Trojan Spirit and determination was without doubt pumping through the whole team’s veins.

This Friday October 18th, @ 7:30 the Trojans are going up against Richmond Hill High School. The fans are ready to watch and the players are even more ready to get out on the field and play. Our very talented Outside Linebacker, Baron Hopson says, “We are really excited for this game man. It’s a big stage and it’s time to do big things.” The guys are ready to go out and play like they know how to play. Magwood and Hopson says that, “We have no doubts. We have faith in our team. Our team always provides us with a great scout book and we are definitely ready for this Friday.”

Hopson says, “Richmond Hill is a great team but I don’t think they match us physically. We definitely have the potential to go out there and win.” Magwood knows, “As long as our defense plays like they know how to play we should be good in the long run.” The Trojans are 100% ready for game day Friday and we all can’t wait to go out and support our boys at the big game!
