An Inside Look at Coach Ned Gonet’s Game-Day Moments
Kara Durrette

As he prepared for his last regular-season home game as head football coach, Ned Gonet shared his thoughts and gave unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to his game-day routine.


Ravenscroft’s Digital Marketing Manager Kara Durrette captured these images, video and recordings of Coach Gonet on Friday, Oct. 21, 2022.

“Being new to the Ravenscroft marketing and communications team, I was honored to be invited during my first week to capture Coach Gonet’s game-day routine on such an important day for him — the day of his last regular-season home game,” she said. “I was most impressed by his dedication to the team through every moment of his day. He spends the morning of a game taking care of his dog and his home because, with a Friday night game, he typically gets home late and will spend much of Saturday reviewing film. But even in his housework, he is thinking about the opponent, the logistics and the strategy for the game ahead. He kept me on my toes throughout the day, and I am grateful to tell a small part of his story here at Ravenscroft.”
