Coaches

Teams will take on the personalities of their coaches. It the coach is a quitter, the team will quit. It the coach is a excuse maker,  the team will find excuses.

A great part of this Highway 83 project has been the chance to meet three outstanding coaches: Jeff Gross at McCook, NB; Chris Koetting .at Canadian, TX and Dan Imdeike at Linton, ND.;

Trying to portray all threes personalities and how they lead their young men is a challenge. In many ways, they are similar, but in more ways, they are unique.

I am sending three youtube clips of three great coaches who my Highway 83 coaches remind me of. Take a look and enjoy the clips. Coaching is a great profession.
