Each week former state championship-winning head coach Doug Socha answers pressing high school football questions for ESPN760.com
2nd Down - What's the view local high school coaches have of FAU football?
"Right now there are a lot of mixed feelings towards FAU football from Palm Beach County coaches. There is a perception that FAU pulled scholarships from some local kids and didn't treat the county the right way. That may be the case, however this is a new era under Carl Pelini and he had to come in and make tough decisions based on his vision for the program. FAU has to go out and find the right fit for their new spread offense and new defensive scheme. Jared Allen is the coach responsible for recruiting Palm Beach County and he is one of the most easy going and honest guys in the business. You always know where you stand with him and he does a great job. Local coaches should go watch a practice and see what a real live D1 kid looks like to get an idea of what they are looking for. The new staff will do a great job at FAU! GO OWLS!"
