"Whether I am teaching someone new to the sport or the next All-American, I care about their personal development. I want them to walk away with a greater mental appreciation for the game and the physical awareness to execute new skills. I also want them to understand that you must have passion and work hard in order to succeed, regardless of the task in front of them."
