This week's "Remember When" looks at a couple of high school football coaching legends from the Merrimack Valley.

First up is Ed Murphy. When you think of Dracut football and Middies Pride, the name Ed Murphy is synonymous with the town of Dracut. In these photos from 1985 and 1988, Coach Murphy talks with player Al Smith (top left) about an upcoming play, and (bottom left) looks at a signed football from his Super Bowl players in Dracut's undefeated 1988 season.

Next up is Chelmsford coaching great Tom Caito (top right), seen talking with a television crew before a Super Bowl appearance, and (bottom right) leading his players in prayer before a big game.
