DECATUR -- Scott Godfrey and Tim Brilley have much in common. They were two years apart at St. Teresa in the late 90s and early 00s. They both coached at St. Teresa after college. Now both are coaching large schools in the 309 area code, with Brilley in his third year leading Morton (5A) and Godfrey embarking on his first with Bloomington High (6A).

The two also have experience building a program: Brilley's Potters went 7-4 last season less than two years after inheriting a winless team. Godfrey took over a Warrensburg-Latham program that won five games in four years and made the playoffs by years four and five.

This week the duo reunited at the Mt. Zion 7-on-7 round robin hosted by Patrick Etherton, who has also been an active part of the football scene between the Braves and Millikin.

In this WAND profile, Brilley and Godfrey share their thoughts on coming "home" (Brilley still lives in Decatur), their rebuilding efforts plus Godfrey gives a scouting report on senior quarterback Griffin Moore (who is committed to Illinois as a tight end).
