Very cool story, thanks for sharing.


Coaches can truly contribute to shaping lives. They get attention for the star athletes, but their impact is often even greater for the kids who never go beyond the HS level,

My favorite example…my daughter’s XC/track coach at Mountain Vista. This is a young guy who has produced close to 10 State XC championship teams.

We’re at a parents’ event and all he wants to talk about is an Open runner (the lowest level) who had just run a best time. Keep in mind this is a team of over 100 kids. He could quote all of that kid’s times. Blew me away.

He makes of all of his kids feel like the most important member of the team. You tell me how he made that kid feel about himself. Life changing.
