Framingham’s Bob Jachowicz remembered as a mentor

When Tom Lamb took the helm of the football program at Natick High in 1975, his counterpart at Framingham South, Bob Jachowicz, already had the perspective of 24 seasons on the sideline, 17 as a head coach.

“When we played Thanksgiving Day in my early years, I’d walk up to him and tell Bob I couldn’t sleep the night before, and he’d just chuckle and tell me to relax, enjoy the game, and that my turkey would still taste good afterwards,’’ Lamb recalled of the man who would become his close friend.
