This Is Why I Coach

With joy in my heart I’d like to share an email exchange I had this week with Ken Gandola, who played for me 50 years ago! November 1, 1966 was the first day of the season. I was 25 years old and was fired up about life. It was the start of my third season as […]

It’s the start of a new school year! There is certainly excitement and apprehension in the air, from college freshmen (our granddaughter Margo) to high school freshmen (our grandson Jess) to kindergarten students!
