NOTEBOOK: Father, son face off for final time in Bucktown

Hank Coyne Sr., tonight
BUCKTOWN — Hank Coyne Sr. hasn’t often had the opportunity to take a seat next to his wife and daughter and watch his son play football the last three years.
Talk about conflicting schedules.
Hank Sr. is an assistant coach at Owen J. Roberts. Hank Jr. is the starting quarterback at Spring-Ford.
Except for those rare occasions when one team is playing Friday night and the other Saturday afternoon, the only times Dad got an up-close look at his son occurred when the Wildcats and Rams met. Those aren’t all that enjoyable, either, considering he and head coach Tom Barr are scheming all week to not only stop the Rams, but his own son.
They’ve been rather frustrating times, too.
For Dad, that is, because going into tonight’s game the Coyne Family Scoreboard shows Hank Jr. 2, Hank Sr. 0.
