As the Final Score podcast continues its look at the upcoming high school football season in Frederick County, Brunswick football coach Jerry Smith is the guest this week.
Smith talks with host Greg Swatek about his first two years on the job, as Brunswick grew from a winless program to one with legitimate playoff aspirations. Has it been more difficult than he expected? What is he the most proud of?
Plus, how will the Railroaders replace some of their top players from last season’s 7-3 team? How does he feel about the nine-game schedule and the new playoff format? What would he say to critics of the team’s independent schedule?
Coach Smith talks about all of this and more, and explains why a small school like Brunswick has been able to sustain a football program for more than 50 years.
