Rich Como no longer coaches the Coatesville football team, but he was on many of the Red Raiders' minds during their 37-14 victory over Manheim Township Saturday at Scott Field. Last year, with Como at the helm, the Raiders lost a tough 7-6 game on a muddy Manheim field that more closely resembled a swamp than a football field. This year, they wanted to win it for Como. "I told the players that coach Como had said to me earlier in the week to get this game for him. The guys really respect him as a coach and as a person," current Coatesville coach Mike Dominick said.
