Coaching keeps me close to sports and those of you that know me know that I'm a sports nut, and have enjoyed sports going back to my youth days. Which was not that long ago. HA! Staying close to sports keeps my competitive juices going. Especially around this time of year as the playoffs approach the competiveness gets cranked up another notch.
It also gives me a chance to teach a sport I truly love in football. It's been great coaching in Frisco, because we've been fortunate enough to stay together for four years. Back in '08 it was all about the basics of football from a stance to how to tackle and block. Each year as the boys have gotten older we've been able to progress with them not just physically, but mentally what we can do on offense and defense. For example the first few years we would run plays in with players to the huddle on offense. The past few years we've gone to bands where we call the plays in from the sideline (with one audible usually a word check) and we've gone to a no huddle spread type offense vs. the good old Wing T.
It's be quite the experience these past four years. Sadly it's also the last year I get to coach my son and the rest of the Vikings. After this they are playing for middle schools in the Frisco area, and soon to be high schools.
Hopefully this is the year we bring home the Super Bowl trophy.
