Thank you for your positive approach. You are an inspiration to the boys and I am eternally grateful for the coaching of the "whole player"... you encouraged them to play as they should live their lives..those are certainly words to live by.Kelly M.
You are demonstrating to them life-long lessons. What are the most important things in life and about them as young men. We are excited to have you as the coach and other parents feel the same. Thank you for taking many of the values that our family have and demonstrating them.Teresa L.
In my family we would call you a mensch, which is the highest compliment possible... Thank you so much for caring for our boys.Donna C.
