Sorry late to the party but curious how this turned out. Since you didn't post again, I'd hope that the guy fell into line?
It was ok. He basically focused on coaching his younger kids team and only really showed up to games to yell at refs. He was constantly pulling the mask down like a chin strap but we survived the season unscathed and covid free. Some of the surrounding towns (I'm north of Philly) were infinitely worse.....crowding, indoor snack bars open with no masks. One of them ended up having cases later in the season and it was as predictable as anything could be. It was totally worth it......we were full virual schools for most of the season so it was the only chance the kids had to really see friends and be somewhat normal.

@Humphrey - What's that in reference to?
The MIAA approved winter sports play with modifications (which aren't nearly as dramatic as the ones for soccer and field hockey). The start date is supposed to be December 14. This was last week when the case load was clearly going up. What would change in a week that they'd push everything back?

Glad to hear it worked out. Could have been a cluster.

Pennsylvania just announced this afternoon shutting down Saturday to Jan. 4 at 8 a.m. Friday is opening night for the high school winter sports season. Only exception is professional and college sports but they will not be permitted to have fans...Interestingly enough, the decision came a day after the high school federation announced it was full steam ahead for the winter sports season.
