The passing of a legend...
Today we remember Coach J.D. Covington who passed away on Tuesday, March 18, 2014 at the age of 85.
I remember the first time I met Coach Covington. I was sitting in history class at Chief Jo Junior High and Mr. Flynn asked me if I would like to become an athletic trainer. At first, I didn't know what that was but he pulled me out of class and standing in the hallway was Coach Covington. Coach and I sat on the stairs for about 20 minutes talking about what athletic training was and that he wanted to send me to the Cramer Athletic Clinic in Moscow, Idaho and learn how to tape ankles.
That one conversation shaped the next five years of my life and beyond and cemented my love of sports and Bomber football. Playing and working for Coach Covington demanded discipline and integrity. It was no different in his geometry class either. Being a lazy teenager at the time, I didn't realize that I was learning more about life than I ever learned about football or math.
People often ask about J.D. Covington's coaching secret. That's easy. He treated you with respect, which is something a lot of teenagers don't often receive. He gave you the tools for life, knowing full well he would never receive anything of similar value in return.
Thank you, Coach. We love you and we will miss you.
