Why do you coach?

  • I coach because I want to give back to society! Changing lives is something I committed to doing for the duration of my life. Many people do not  realize their full potential and I want to change that! Being a former walk on out of high school to having a successful college career, taught me that if you want something bad enough, you must believe and work hard! Seeing our Members, from adults to athletes,  change physically, mentally and socially is awesome!

Why do you coach?

 

  • “My primary purpose in life is to support and teach others to best the they can be mentally, physically, and academically.  I never thought the meaning of life was to be rich, popular, or perfect.  Life for me is about being real, humble, able to share my ideas and experiences, and to touch the lives of others.  The parallel that I want others to have is that of my own development.  I had the privileged to play under very notable coaches, and it is important to me to impart knowledge that I gained from some of the best in the field.  I want all under my tutelage to be bold enough to use his or her voice, be brave enough to listen to his/her heart, and strong enough to live the life that he/she always imagined.  Ultimately, my goal is to help others to know their purpose, and at the very least if he/she doesn’t know his/her purpose, we can work on his/her passion, which develops purpose.  I’m living my dream, but I am always looking for inspiration to do more.”

Why do you coach?

  • I’ve always lived by “life is not about what you can do for yourself, but what you can do for others. “saying this, being able to help and provide the youth and others with the tools they need to help succeed in their personal goals is the ultimate reward for me. Having been blessed to see some of my dreams and goals for myself overtime has convinced me of this one simple fact, anything in life is attainable with hard work and consistency. Being able to help apply the knowledge I have been able to obtain from college and my professional career and give it back to the youth is something I take pride in to help them achieve their dreams and let every athlete understand you can do anything you put your mind to.
