This Spring is the first of my coaching years that I will not coach baseball. I made a family decision in the Fall of 2008 that I thought was best for my family. I am hurting. Baseball is the ONLY reason I am a college graduate. It has opened a lot of doors for me and the relationships that were created with coaches/players/umpires etc. are priceless. Anyway, I am a track guy now. I have not been thrilled about this but I welcome it. I am a professional educator and work-ethic has never been an issue. Here are the stats. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest, I am about a 1.5 on any knowledge level about track. I have been given the hurdlers. My knowledge level about hurdlers is a 0. I look forward to this challenge and can't wait to see what impact, if any, I will have on my boys & girls this Spring.

  1. You will miss baseball but the time you have now for a break with family and to study up and prepare for some great off-season trades will sure help. Track is really just an extension of football. The hurdles are one of lifes greatest metaphors..keep moving and "ATTACK" that next hurdle...!
