The head football coach at Rock Falls High School has several connections with the field he now works with.

Coach Scott Berge not only grew up learning to football on that field but also said “I do” on the field when he married his wife on the 50-yard-line in 2012.

Berge said as a coach he enjoys working with the athletes that truly want to be at practice working hard. He said he focuses on instilling school pride and community pride.

“I want great football players but I want better people going into society,” said Berge.
