Why I Coach?: I firmly believe that the best way to learn is to take parts from many and wrap them into a whole. Thusly if I can teach an athlete even just one thing that they can take with them that makes them better than they were, whether on the field or off, it is worth any amount of work or time.
Personal Point of Pride: Determined - allows oneself to be willing to push through adversity and continue to pursue their goals no matter how difficult it may seem. Everyone will get knocked down at some point, to me it’s how you respond to that that will truly define character. Never settle for less than what you believe you should be.
