What is one of the greatest aspects of being involved in athletics?
For me, one of the greatest aspects is forming meaningful relationships with student-athletes to help develop them in all aspects of their lives. Parents entrust their children to us as freshmen, and our job becomes to shape and mold these young people into the next generation of leaders by using the skills and talents we have developed over our careers. It is something that I believe is very special and the opportunity to influence and develop our student-athletes is something to be cherished.
