I have known Towery for a long time, he is a good guy and would give you the shirt off his back! I'll bet most of you negative posters have never even met him, just going off what someone told you or whatever. He'll be the first one to admit the mistakes he has made, especially at Winnfield. The honesty and lies thing is totally false, he's just the opposite honest to a fault, tells it like he see's it. As far as the funky motion thing, that's inaccurate too, he works with several QB's in the Baton Rouge area, including the last three starters from Central, the two possible starters for Central next year, the starter at Catholic and several others in the Baton Rouge area. The Briscoe kid would be the starter at McNeese right now if it wasn't for all the knee injuries. They came to him for some reason? You figure it out. Why get on here and trash the man for something that happened 6 years ago? He know's the things he did wrong and he accepts that he made mistakes. Leave it alone!
I don't know why your addressing me with that rant I was very diplomatic in my views of Towery and left some of my other opinions of him off the post because they are not needed for someone who is getting a fresh start. The funky throwing motion is not a myth, he had a wall built on the practice field at Winnfield to teach the quick, funky throwing motion while throwing against the wall that is a fact I witnessed many times. When he followed Sid to Central as the OC, I watched a game of the week featuring Central and Briscoe, the announcers even made the comment of "Briscoe having a good arm, but a very awkward throwing motion" and what do you know it was the same motion he taught at Winnfield.
I've backed up your friend's offensive scheme so don't get so butthurt. Hopefully he learned from past coaching stops and gets Abbeville rolling.
