DR LEGGS’ report on COACH SHANE (Richard Lambeth)

Hello, I am Dr Leggs, the resident psychiatrist of Sunset Cove. Many interesting people come to see me about their problems (and you can sometimes see me in Atlantis High!). Each week I’m profiling different Sunset Covers – and this week is the tanned and toned Coach Shane.

Name:Coach Shane (without the Coach there is no Shane).
Age: Twenty something in body but oh so much younger in mind.

The physical education teacher with the tan and the cha cha cha.

Appearance:Never without a sexy little pair of spandex shorts, a whistle round the neck and a pair of sparkling white trainers. Oh, and a football under his arm.
Past History:Nobody seems to know the history of Coach Shane. He has been working at the school for quite some time and loves living in Sunset Cove. It seems as if Coach Shane would have been a mummy’s boy and it is quite possible that he actually lives with his mother even now as it is doubtful that he would be able to cope on his own.
Motives:The Coach wants everyone to be as into sport as he is. He wannts everybody to be as tanned as he is. And he wants spandex to make a comeback. He is fascinated with dance moves and tries to incorporate it as much as he can in to his everyday life.
Influences:The Coach is influenced by the sun’s movement across the sky and by the amount of glitter on his shorts. He loves the gym and the beach. But most of all he is influenced by his mirror.
Strengths: This tanned adonis is a fantastic dancer once he gets his groove thang going. He is also the best at tanning in the whole of Sunset Cove and at knowing how to position himself in the sun to maximise the rays. The Coach is great at polishing his mirror so that he can see himself to best advantage and he’s pretty good at keeping his hair swept back. He also has a knack for buying the teeniest weeniest shorts available to man.
Weaknesses: The weaknesses are actually a mirror image of the strenghts in this case. Coach Shane has a definite weakness for shopping, looking in the mirror, checking that his hair is looking good and following the rays of sun. Coach Shane also has a weakness for the milkshakes they make at the Princess Diner and if he doesn’t watch out, he might develop a weight problem.
Catchphrases: “Here’s your motivation” – “Stick with the game plan” – “Touchdown” – “Moby Who?” and (to himself) “Hey gorgeous”.
Secrets:.This is one person who has no secrets. He’s like an open book. He is in love with himself and he is more than happy for everyone to know it. No, I’ve got nothing on this guy.

Rumour has it that the Coach is becoming an expert Latin dancer and might just be looking at a career in the Ballroom. It is also rumoured that the Coach is likely to develop a fascination for leg warmers and he has been spotted eyeing up a vivid orange glittery pair at the local mall.
