NEWPORT — “I tell this story to my players all the time,” Lake Region Union High School soccer Coach Tom Evans said, as he settled into a cream-colored leather chair. “But, mind you, it’s not really about me. Capiche?”
Though Mr. Evans has achieved a certain degree of success in his 33 years of coaching soccer at Lake Region, he doesn’t view his achievements as his own. He doesn’t much care for the glare of a spotlight in his face. He’d prefer that the light shine on someone else.
