For me, coaching is not only a way to teach girls the proper way to play the game but to also teach them valuable life lessons.  I still keep in contact with several former players and I even cook them a family style dinner when they come home from college on Christmas break just to catch up with all of them.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing golf, and watching Cleveland Browns football.
