My First Meeting with Coach

By May 20, 2014 Story Wall No Comments

I was coaching for the Dakota Schoolers in Omaha and coach was watching some of the players on the team. We had just finished the game and I was chasing my 4 yr old daughter who had been at the game. She ran past coach and knocked over his Diet Coke. I immediately apologized and began cleaning up the mess. Coach just laughed and said it was no big deal. He then asked for a diagram and teaching points for an out of bounds play we had run during the game. I took out a pen to write it down for him. He asked to see my pen, wrote with it, said he like it and asked where I got it. Coach loved good pens. Later that summer I got a personal note from coach thanking me for sharing the diagram with him. Still have the note to this day.
