Friday, September 13. 1991 THE CINCINNATI FNQUIRFR EXTRAWest 3 "He's fine," Pont told an assistant coach. "That's just how he psyches himself up for a game. Everybody does it differently." Before leaving the cafeteria, Pont helps an assistant coach fill coolers with soft drinks and ice for players after the game. Then it's back to the dryer to check on the clothes, which still are not dry. So Pont goes to his office to sit for a few minutes and Rose-Hulman head coach Scott Duncan. They talk like old friends, which they are Duncan played for Pont at Northwestern. Each wishes the other good luck as Pont leaves the locker room. Then he turns down the hall and out to the buses, already loaded with players and coaches. Next stop: Oak Hills High School and the game, which Mount St. Joseph wins, 32-27. ons' opponent later in the day and says a few words to the gathering. "This has been the finest three weeks of practice I've ever gone through as a coach," he said. Now he goes back to the athletics building and the coaches' locker room. This is small-college football, so coaches from both teams dress in the same room. Pont greets his opponent, relax, taking care of pass lists for the opposing team. "The players are in a good mood," Pont said with a familiar smile. "They're into their season mode now." With about 20 minutes to go before departure, Pont walks from his office to the school's theater-gallery where an alumni brunch is warming up. He shakes hands, greets officials from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology the Li The Mount CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 the Mount, coaches wear a lot of hats. Over the summer, Pont worked with his coaches and some local players to sod the practice field after heavy rain washed away the grass seed. "The one constant is, football dictates certain things in any atmosphere," Pont said. "It's the nature of the game. People might be surprised, our practices here are no different that any Division I college camp." Pont said at Indiana, for example, he wouldn't do many things differently on game day, "except for the physical work. I didn't do anything like carrying tables. And I didn't have to worry about things like the press box and ticket lists. But I'd go out and check the field in the morning, and we'd have meetings between coaches and players." And, when teams at Indiana or Northwestern traveled, they boarded an airplane rather than a bus. At 9:15 a.m. on this Saturday, Pont arrives at the college cafeteria where some players are already eating breakfast. He moved around the tables, greeting and talking to coaches and players. He paused for a few minutes to talk to a player sitting alone, isolated from his teammates. The young man had tears in his eyes. HAVE A FIT!
