SHARE Mount Carmel star Alek Thomas: “Frank Lenti did not retire”

Mount Carmel’s Alek Thomas (27) fakes a hand-off and gets a first down against St. Rita. Worsom Robinson/For the Sun-Times.

Alek Thomas, the Caravan’s star football player, had a lot to say about Mount Carmel pushing out legendary football coach Frank Lenti. His comments, in full:

“I couldn’t believe it. After all that he’s done for Mount Carmel and what he’s done for the program this is truly shocking to me. He didn’t retire. He wouldn’t retire. He would have kept going until he physically couldn’t coach anymore.

“I don’t know what actually went down but I do know that he did not retire. Coach Frank and I have a good relationship and it’s sad to see what happened after all he’s done for Mount Carmel. I’m honored to be on the last Mount Carmel team he coached and I surely will never forget what he taught me as both a football player and person.”
