Video: Skip Capone, the old football coach, finds a new sport and a new way to give back

A 20-year assistant football coach at Bates, Skip Capone is also a coaching legend in Lewiston who led the Blue Devils to a state football championship in 1987.

Three years ago, Capone found a new way to give back to his community, by coaching the Lewiston girls lacrosse team.

Regardless of the sport, Capone brings high energy and fun to his athletes. “It’s about having fun,” he says while coaching his lacrosse players. “If you have energy as a coach, the kids feed off of that, and it’s no different with the linemen at Bates or here.”
