Favorite Verse

Whoever serves, let him do so as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever amen.- 1 Peter 4:11

Why I Coach?

My passion is to help anyone who has a desire to better their life do so, whether that be in life or sport performance. I love working with athletes of all ages and ability levels and helping them realize strength and ability they didn’t know they had. I wake up every morning in the hope that I can be a positive influence on a young man or woman so that when they go off to college or move on in their life, they are stronger, not just physically but mentally and spiritually, and can handle whatever life is going to throw at them. As a coach I want to grow and learn as much as I can so that I can be the best for my athletes so that they can grow and become the best athletes they can be in the hopes or accomplishing goals and dreams they set from the very first day they walk through our doors. I want to create an environment of excellence so that when you walk through our doors, good is left outside and better becomes the main objective. It’s why we say, “If better is possible, good is not enough.”

Why I Coach?

I coach to make people better because if we aren’t getting better then we’re getting worse.
