    A day lasts 24 hours and if you’re looking for Justin O’Toole during that time, it’s a good bet that you will find him at either Midway Middle School or Midway High School.

    The longtime coach is pulling double duty this year as head coach of both the MMS and MHS boys basketball teams.
    His days start as early as 5:15 a.m. and sometimes don’t end till 10 p.m., but O’Toole doesn’t see the long hours as a burden, but rather a blessing.
