He is a really good player being coached by one of the best (if not THE best) coaches in the state.
Graduated and played for Weiner over a decade ago. Weiner is a very nice guy. He's also borderline hilarious IMO.
Having said that, he's a bad football coach, and I'm not even slightly exaggerating. The talent that's gone through that program with next to nothing to show for it in the way of hardware is embarassing. His spin offense is so fundamentally flawed and archaic it's hard to believe someone in major high school football is still using it.
Also a big reason why Catholic, and Weiner, has done so well the past however years was because of Garidel.
Is this a true statement? Garidel is the most elementary DC I've ever encountered at the major high school level. Some of the schemes we used to run in 3A South Carolina ball would make that drunk's head spin.
If you want the secret to CHS's success just look to the infrastructure and weight lifting program Hatch setup there. The only reason those teams have any success is the fact they have one of the top S&C programs around.
The main reason they've slipped as of late is other programs are catching up to the 24/7 strength program culture. Back in the day CHS was the only program that had kids lifting in the summer as 7th and 8th graders through on to their senior years. Now that's the norm, and they don't have the overwhelming physical edge they once did.
That is the real reason they've dipped. Weiner hasn't changed anything in the last decade and won't do so anytime soon.
If some of yal went and saw the systems that are ran in schools in Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina it would make you die laughing watching the things Weiner runs. Louisiana high school football is awesome because the talent is just staggering, but the level of coaching is awful compared to other states.
