Mike Bethea, right, shares a hearty laugh with assistant coaches Ricky Frazier, left, and Gary Ladd, Jr., who both played under him at Rainier Beach, before a home game against Eastside Catholic on Friday, Jan. 10, 2014. The closeness and familiarity of the coaching staff allows Bethea to step back during locker room huddles, sometimes letting himself be the last to speak. LINDSEY WASSON/THE SEATTLE TIMES
