After two hospital visits last year, Sylvester is glad to be outside, able to horse around with his team during an intense preseason scrimmage.
Syvester and his squad are preparing for their 2011 Mountain Valley Conference opener at rival Wiscasset on Sept. 6 (4 p.m.).
“I am back to doing what I love,” said Sylvester after participating in the scrimmage at the tail end of a two-plus hour practice with his team. “After what happened to me last season, I am fired up to be back out here, coaching my team again.”

“Mark told me they played with so much emotion, and was truthfully one of their best games of the season,” said Sylvester, who returned for the final two games as the Greyhounds finished 5-8-1. “That game against St. Dom’s showed their character. It made me feel good that they were motivated and came out and played with a lot of heart and passion for me. I am honored to be their coach.”
