Philip Rivers gave an awesome interview after winning high school coaching debut.
Rivers won his first game with St. Michael Catholic Cardinals 49-0 Thursday night, according to ESPN, and the man was juiced afterwards. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
In a video from Ben Thomas, which has been viewed nearly a million times, the retired NFL passer talked about his excitement about the win and how he hopes kids savor the moment. Watch the great moment below.

That’s the kind of joy and happiness that you simply can’t buy or put a price on. You either have it in your soul or you don’t, and Rivers has it spades.
He could barely contain his joy and excitement, and virtually none of it had to do with him. Despite the fact he coached the team to a blowout win, he was focused on the young men who suited up for him.
The former Chargers star wanted the young men on his roster to recognize the situation they’re in, soak it up and recognize it will eventually be gone.
I miss hearing him talk to the media every week!!
Philip Rivers is always so real…and entertaining.. https://t.co/s7s0P9r12f

I really wish there were more people like Philip Rivers in the world of sports. He always keeps it real and never disappoints.
He’s honest and his attitude is infectious. People like that don’t really exist these days!
Philip Rivers couldn’t help himself this week — he wanted to know what everyone was writing about him. Gotta give him credit: Not many QBs would admit this.
