WHY I COACH: "I love coaching this sport for so many different reasons. I love being able to watch the players see and develop their potential. I love the character that being involved in athletics can create along with the life lessons that can be learned. I adore the players that I get to coach and love to witness them experience things in themselves that they didn't believe that they could do. Being a part of team provides a “family” away from home and helps foster and create close and lasting relationships. These are all things that you just can’t put a price on!”
