A Coach Without a Game Plan

SHELBY, Ohio -- How do you devise a game plan from an incomplete scouting report?
How do you prepare for an opponent you know almost nothing about?
Chris Solis has devoted his professional life to avoiding situations like those -- or, more accurately, eliminating those eventualities for the athletes in his charge. Preparation is, after all, a tenet of any successful coach's philosophy. And by all accounts, Solis is a successful coach.
But Solis, who quietly turned in his resignation as Shelby's football coach last month, couldn't have readied himself for this adversary.
It's causes are unknown, and there is no cure.
His 3-year-old son, Colin, was diagnosed with autism in October.
