As the weather gets colder out there, Philadelphia's favorite assistant high school hockey coach is back at work.
Matt Stairs enters his fourth season at John Bapst High School in his hometown of Bangor, Maine.
“Coaching is fun,” Stairs told the Bangor Daily News. “You get back the first couple of days, everyone asks you questions about how it was, what’s going on and what’s this guy like.
“But the good thing about it is when I get here, everyone treats me just like a regular coach. The biggest thing is I’ve been around so long and I’ve played the game for so long, what I try to teach the kids as a positive role model is if you have a dream, anything is possible."
Stairs has a year remaining on his contract with the Phillies and said the World Series championship still has not sunk in.
