A NOTE LEFT ON COACH'S DESK
Sometimes we get to see some "light", some "fruit" of our labor. Other times not so much.
Here is an example of some light.
I found this note on my desk today from a player of mine who I've been coaching and mentoring throughout the season. As a coach it's always our hope that we are making a difference in a young athlete's life. I wanted to share what this player wrote:
To Coach DeJoy
I love you as a coach and you are the reason why I am wearing green and gold in high school. On the back page he shared some of his goals:
2012 Sycamore "I Will"
I am a champion
Will not make excuses
Loyalty to the team, and soon to be a legend.
Mentoring works! Please continue to work and build these players into good men! They need us! Finally, embrace being a role model! This is the reason why we do what we do!
