I coached HS for 26 years, was a Club Director in Ohio for 12 years, prior to stepping into the Club Director at DME in 2015.

WHY DO YOU COACH VB AND WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT IT?
I coach because I had great coaches that made a difference in my life. In coaching I get to work with young people. I get to guide them in 2 of the most important games they will ever play: life and sports. Coaches get the opportunity to help mold young people into adults and I cannot think of a better profession in the world today.
