Coach Peter Boston was a positive influence on many Yazooans during his coaching career. By JAMIE PATTERSON
His name is Peter Boston.
“It’s Boston, like the baked beans,” he says, with a smile, and most people call him “Coach.”
He’s a man who needs no introduction in these parts.
Boston is a local legend who has coached generations of Yazoo children, including many who went onto to become professional athletes.
He never meets a stranger, has a contagious smile and a wonderful sense of humor.
Stories of his kindness and care come from all walks of life around the community.
He’s a humble man who rarely talks about himself. But others have plenty of good things to say about him.
