I had a great conversation with a coach this morning.
This past Sunday he was at the 9:30 AM Mass with his family and in walk 8 of his HS football players in shirt and tie together and sit down right next to him.
He knew nothing about this. One of his players organized it. He did the inviting, the calling, the reminding.
As they are all saying "Good Morning, Coach" he realized that some of them had not seen the inside of a Church in quite a while.
"Lou, it was one of the best experiences of my whole life. Sometimes you wonder if the kids are listening."
Not only are they listening - they are showing up in shirt and tie. "Tiny miracles".
Never underestimate your influence as a coach.
