"I've learned patience, organization and caring about and leading young men to be their best," Sterner said.
Among the thrills he'll be experiencing this year will be the opportunity to coach sons Joe and Andy on the gridiron.
Joe is a sophomore quarterback/receiver/linebacker while Andy is on the freshman team.
"Coaches have told me it is really a cherished experience," Sterner said. "I agree so far, but to a large extent, I feel these are all my boys. A wise coach told me, 'On the road to the goal, the road IS the goal.' I expect to enjoy every day along the way."
