Everyone was afraid of him.
Before try-outs, during try-outs, after try-outs. But no one messed with him. He could take a room full of twenty teenage girls in sneakers and silence us. No giggles, no rolling-eyes, no chattering.
My dad was a very focused coach.
But if there has been ever a man who is good at what he does, it's my dad. I've never met someone who can do what he does.
Watch someone and see their current skill.
See potential and vision for where they can be.
Build where they are weak, without ignoring where they are strong.
Constantly challenging where they are strong, with out discouraging where they are weak.
He takes individuals and makes them run like a machine together.
He analyzes tactic, technique, personality and character like no one else I know.
