Coaching inspiration: There are a lot of inspirations for getting into coaching. Playing sports growing up you quickly see what kind of positive effect a great coach can have on your life. The biggest inspiration would have to be my dad. Regardless if it was football and watching tape, recording plays in Pop Warner or hockey, my dad learned the game on the fly; I’ll always remember car rides after games and practices analyzing what happened. Understanding the game and giving maximum effort were qualities I prided myself on. Once you can’t play anymore the closest you can get is coaching and I fell in love.
