Peters Makes Impact as Coach and Teacher
Kathleen Moran - October 31, 2007
One of our newest additions answers the questions you've been dying to know.
Have you noticed anything different about our high school? Besides the fact we no longer have to worry about the ceiling unexpectedly leaking during class, we have a new teacher. He doesn't exactly blend in either, at a monstrous height of 6'7", Jason Peters seems to tower over the rest of us. I had the opportunity to sit down with our new World History teacher and football coach.
