Most of us who have played the game, understand how important coaching is. Nearly all of us can recall the names of every one of our coaches, even the names of the guys that coached us 20 years ago.
Most of us were impacted quite deeply by our coaches and have used the positive experiences of the game to help shape who we are. I for one appreciate all the time, energy, passion and effort all youth coaches put into developing kids and striving for excellence.
The game of football and those who coach it have an important role in the development of our young men and women in today's world. (To view our past history, scroll down to the bottom page)
