Palmer meets the Tiger Sharks

Meet the new boss; looks a lot like an old boss.

John Palmer returned to the locker room at Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School last week to offer a message and get acquainted with the players who figure to comprise the 2014 football roster.

The message was succinct – let’s continue the rebound of the past two years during which the Tiger Sharks have posted a record of 15-7.

“I wanted to give them a little bit of what our vision is coming in and that is to keep on with the upswing of the past two years,” Palmer said. “I was really pleased with the number of kids who came out.”

The locker room was, in fact, brimming with focused faces.

Palmer, who was submitting some paperwork in advance of his March 24 start date with Gulf District Schools, made the afternoon conclave primarily a get-to-know-you session.

In some cases he has seen the players on the field from the press box. In other cases, Palmer knows the number, but not the face or name.
