Brett Lorenzo Favre is a 20-year veteran of the NFL.
He set records, won a lot of games and made a number of headlines in the process.
But that’s not the Brett Favre that Fox Sports South spoke with on Wednesday as he takes on his latest challenge: offensive coordinator at Oak Grove High School in Mississippi.
“Even though I played pro football, these kids could care less, really. That’s over and done with,” Favre says as he describes his new challenge.
Oak Grove was fortunate to win its first three games, with a play drawn up by Favre leading the Warriors to victory late in all three.
“I kind of made it up in my mind prior to the season. I don’t know if we’ve blocked a soul on the play yet, but I told them that initially, I said, ‘We may not block anyone.’ It’s kind of a screen, really it has more to do with the guy who catches it.”
Favre described his experience so far as “rewarding.”
The Warriors are currently 5-0 and ranked 16th in the state of Mississippi. They take on Petal High School this Thursday on Fox Sports South in Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky and Mississippi.
