To watch Russell White coach Encino Crespi during a basketball game offers great entertainment seeing the many changes in emotion.

He's always teaching, preaching, cajoling, pleading. And that's just with the officials.

Of course, his players get an earful. He's trying to influence them in a positive way. All you need to do is look how London Perrantes turned out. He's the starting guard at Virginia.

One fan said after Crespi's 74-71 win over West Ranch on Thursday night that White was rather easy on everyone.

You've heard of "Fifty Shades of Grey." It's Fifty Shades of Red watching White in action.

It was exhausting just trying to keep the camera on him. And wait until Mission League play begins.
