Brief Summary- I got into the teaching, mentoring, and coaching profession because leading and developing young people (in sports) is my passion. I truly enjoy watching the week to week work that a student/athlete puts into their “craft” and then seeing the benefits of that work on game day. I believe that through sports an individual can build responsibility, character, team work, and a work ethic that can translate over to whatever that individual choses to do with his or her life. And together we can build a solid foundation for the future of that young person’s career in life.
