Re: Skunk Works 1983 Coach Position

When I was in high school. I was always excited to see 1983 on the team roster for an event, but nervous to see them behind the glass on the opposite side of the field. If I were done getting my degree I would probably be applying for this position, but it doesn't really make sense for me right now. I wish you all the best of luck, and I hope you find someone good to fill the position!
