Motivational Quotes

SUCCESS is no accident. It is hard work, perseverence, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, LOVE OF WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

Coaching Philosophy

My philosophy of coaching involves three main objectives, which if all done well, should lead to successful season.

My first objective is communication. Every individual on the team must communicate with each other at all times. This includes the players as well as the coaches. During practices and games, I feel it is vital to know the thoughts of the entire team.

My second objective is determination. I will put in time before the game to put the team in a positive scenario and the players will carry that determination throughout the week and into games to ensure the team success.

My third and final objective is teamwork. If every member of the team works together and strives to do their best, at the end of the season, the team will be considered a success.
