| ||Most Memorable High School Sporting Moment:
||Playing varsity football as a freshman. Until this time I think I just went through the motions. I quickly realized that if I worked harder I got more playing time and at a higher level. The most rewarding part was making the upperclassman upset and this made me work that much harder. Once this trend started, I just kept pushing to be the best I could be and I never worried what others thought.I feel like I'm still using this same strategy today. I may not be the best coach but as long as I try my best and put every effort into doing what I can to make my teams better then I will be happy.

||Quitting.......I thought my coach was playing favorites with other team members. I later realized that I just wasn't good enough. It's hard to say you're not as good as others but in all reality every athlete has to say this sooner or later.

| ||Most Memorable Coaching Moment:
||Beating Lutheran St. Charles in 2002. The victory came on a last second play and infront of a packed house. The place went crazy. It was such an awesome experience to be part of something that meant so much to so many people. Winning a conference title was a great team effort for an entire season, so I think the moment we finally won the title was a very rewarding moment. Being a part of the first District Championship basketball team was a great experience and winning that final game was very emotional!
| ||Comments on Coaching:
||I have been blessed with the opportunity to coach. Because of my love for sports through middle and high school, coaching is what I always wanted to do. Even though it's much harder than I imagined, I still have that same desire today. Being a part of a team, building bonds with the players and staff, and the strategy/time/practices behind the scenes are what make coaching so fun. Along with the fun, coaching has also taught me to be a better teacher and a better person. As a young coach, I had the opportunity to be an assistant coach under coaches such as Jerry Oetting and Jim Cook, and the knowledge I received from professionals like these two has helped me in all aspects of my career and life. Jerry's organizational skills made every practice a challenge and allowed for his teams to always be prepared. Because of this, I always try to plan practices to put my teams in the best position to better their chances of collecting a victory and to better them as individuals along the way. With Jim Cook, he taught me to be dedicated to putting the time behind the product. You always try/expect to win every game and although sometimes you might not win there are many valuable lessons that can be learned from a loss. Wins and Losses are an easy way to judge someone's career, but I believe the dedication behind the program is just as important. Jim Cook may not have won a state championship, but I know many of those that have, can't come close to the dedication to his kids and his program. In the same regard, I know I will be judged by whether my teams win or lose or by the number of players I play, but I feel as long as I put every effort into making each year the best it can be, then I will be satisfied with the results. I wish everyone had the opportunity to coach or at least be part of a team.
