PLYMOUTH â€” A wise man once said â€śA win is a win is a win,â€ť and Plymouthâ€™s Rockies are in agreement with that sentiment.
â€śItâ€™s been a tough time for a lot of us...(Principal) Jim Condon and (Athletic Director) Roy Benge and lots of other people that have supported our program and the things we do,â€ť said Plymouth Head Coach John Barron. â€śWinning does help a lot of things â€” the biggest of which we had a great summer, weâ€™ve told our kids that their hard work will pay off and this helps them believe what we were saying. As a coach you really want to see your kids rewarded for hard work.â€ť
