I coach to inspire students to be more. My goal is to instill tenacity, work ethic, time management, team spirit, and true sportsmanship. To offer an opportunity for students to feel defeat and yet to know that in that defeat they can find strength and pride. To allow students to be part of a team that lifts each other up so they can have the courage to come back and try again. If I can inspire students to embrace who they are and be proud, then my purpose for being a coach is realized.
