Gannon selected for FACA Hall of Fame

Published: Thursday, June 19, 2014 at 09:02 AM.

With Coach John Palmer – another FACA Hall of Famer as is Eppinette – back leading the Port St. Joe program, Gannon will continue as defensive coordinator on a volunteer basis.

If you’ve reached this far in this story, and Gannon would prefer you didn’t make it this far, Gannon will explain what this coaching business is about, because, he said, it isn’t about the money or the titles or the attention.

Echoing words spoken by a Florida State University football coach last weekend, Gannon put his 30-plus years in perspective.

“If you can shape one person or help any kid along the way to find the right path, that is why you get into coaching,” Gannon said. “If you just help one kid, that is why you do it.”
