Mississippi State head baseball coach John Cohen values the relationship he has with the high school and junior college coaches in Mississippi.
When it comes to the Bulldogs or any of the other colleges in the state having success, Cohen knows the high school and junior colleges have to be a big part of that.
He respects the job high school coaches do to keep their programs going.
"It's time for people to really take a closer look at what the high school coaches and junior college coaches in this state are doing for college baseball," Cohen said earlier this month. "It's humbling to be a part of that. At our team camp (Wednesday) night, talking with so many of the high school coaches who are from our area, the jobs they do is unbelievable. They work concession stands, they're mowing their grass and working their infield dirt, they are putting in their own irrigation systems, and they are taking up tickets.
"It's a thankless job unlike any other high school job. For a high school baseball coach, you can't just roll the baseballs out there and play. There are so many auxiliary types of jobs. My hat is off to all of those guys and the work they put in."
