One word my players would use to describe me: Competitive
If you weren't a coach, what would you be: A counselor
If you had to coach another sport, what would it be: Softball!! Unfortunately, I've been come soft working inside over the years, so I'm not sure how up to coaching softball I would be anymore!
Most rewarding moment as a coach: Every time a player calls/text me to check in or when they show up at my front door to visit! Continuing personal relationships with players is the most rewarding!

Weirdest thing about you: I can't touch my eyes (heaven forbid something gets in my eye, it's there until it decides to come out!) I also can't watch other people touch their eyes (like put contacts in, pull them down to see if something is in it, ect)
Any superstitions: If we lose, I will not wear the outfit I was coaching in the remainder of the season or until another lose occurs, whether it's that season or the next.
