Notebook: Bill Parcells stops by Dwyer football practice; Curt Maggitt named freshman all-SEC 

By Matt Porter

Former Miami Dolphins GM and Super Bowl-winning coach Bill Parcells decided to drop by Dwyer practice Thursday to, in the words of a Panthers assistant coach, just ‘hang out.’

It also appears the Big Tuna coached up a few Panthers players.

Parcells, who took former Dwyer quarterback Jacoby Brissett and defensive lineman Curt Maggitt out to lunch last year during recruiting season, apparently gave some Dwyer players one-on-one tutoring.

“He just taught [sophomore wide receiver] Clint Stephens more football in 4 minutes than he has learned his whole life,” the assistant coach wrote via text message.

That’s no dig on Dwyer coach Jack Daniels, whose father-in-law is a friend of Parcells.

Parcells, who left the Dolphins last year after spending a brief time as a team consultant, was most recently an NFL analyst for ESPN, is a Jupiter resident. No word on if he plans to attend Dwyer’s Class 7A state semifinal game against Manatee, 7:30 p.m. Friday in Bradenton.

Maggitt honored: Maggitt, the 2010 Post large schools defensive player of the year, was Thursday named to the freshman All-SEC team.

Maggitt, who played strong-side linebacker for Tennessee, racked up 56 tackles, which was second among SEC freshmen, third on the team and the fourth-most by a Vols true freshman.

He started eight games, played in 11 overall and earned a SEC freshman of the week nod after posting seven tackles (2.5 for loss) against Vanderbilt Nov. 19. He also had six tackles and a forced fumble Nov. 12 against No. 8 Arkansas.
