Fist bumps, nicknames, and casual hallway conversations. No one delivers these things as well as Coach Matt Case.

As of October 12, the final fist bumps were given, and the last hallway conversation occurred. Case has taken the opportunity to work for a company dealing with thermal imaging called FLIR, but leaving LHS was an extremely difficult decision for him to make.

“[It was] definitely bittersweet because it could open a door for a brighter future,” Case said, “but it was difficult because I know I won’t be able to coach with the hours of the new job.”

In his five years at Londonderry, Case has coached the freshman team and helped the varsity team with their QB’s. Aside from coaching, Case has spent the years subbing and monitoring the ISS room, and according to him, those are the people that he’ll miss most.

“It’s been a great experience meeting new people who I’ve formed friendships with, and it was awesome to see the players grow over my years here,” Case said. “The family-like community was outstanding, and the atmosphere of Lancer Nation is unmatched no matter where you go!”

That love seems to be well reciprocated between Case and his players. When senior Evan Cormier was a freshman, he had the opportunity to get to know Case pretty well.

“He threw with me every day in the summer coming into my freshman year,” Cormier said. “He showed me what the expectation was going to be for the years to come.”

When varsity head coach Jimmy Lauzon, who has known Case since 2010, was introduced to the Londonderry program in 2014, he brought Case in with him. For someone trying to make an immediate impact, Lauzon had to bring in the best guys that he could.

“I wanted him on board because he was familiar with our offensive system,” Lauzon said.

Coach Case proved his worth and knowledge for the game in leading his freshman teams to a total 27-14 record, going undefeated in two of his four seasons as coach. Though there were ups and downs, Coach Case consistently showed success through his players.

“[Success comes] from the players enjoyment and love for the game. Coaches can’t win it for them,” Case said.

The hallways will not be the same without the always-positive Coach Case. He left a lasting impact on his co-workers, students, and players that they will never forget!
