I make the job of being a coach sound easy, but then there is the other side of coaching. It is hard to see the disappoint on a child's face when you have to bench them for poor play, under-achieving grades, or a negative attitude. It is even tougher when you have to select a team and you have to choose one kid over another. What about the times when a coach applies for a job and is not picked? You put yourself and family out there for public criticism and yes, someone always has something to say. When you do make a mistake it becomes greatly magnified. Man, I love to coach.
Coaches, I take my hat off to all of you because I have been in your shoes. I try my best to support all of you because the support given is deserved by the student-athletes. The kids are what truly matters.
