WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” - Coach Carter

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SHIELD VALUE And WHY: Respect, to respect is such a broad but important shield value. One that respects the game, the team and themselves seem to grow as players on and off the field.

 

WHY DO YOU COACH FOR KCSG: The overall club atmosphere and ability to coach players who enjoy learning the game and seeing the growth of players on and off the field
