While football is my favorite sport, I enjoy NFL more than college. I have come to enjoy baseball again and since I live in the south, the Atlanta Braves are my new favorite team. Growing up in central Indiana, I lived for November and the start of basketball season. I enjoy Nascar too even though my interest has dwindled over the last few years. I also am an asst. coach for our local middle school basketball team. In my spare time, I am the p.a. announcer for a local high school for football, and baseball and enjoy creating an atmoshphere that invites the fans to get involved in the game.

I am just an simple fan that became passionate about the sport in the early 1990's.  Over the last five years or so, myself along with other…

What kind of qualities make a good coach?  Knowing the sport they're coaching?  To some extent.  What about teaching lessons in life as well as the sport?  Personally, I think that as much to do with the rules of the game and learning the "tricks of the trade" of the sport being played.  I'm strongly believe that you can't have one without the other.  
Being a law enforcement officer assigned as a school resource officer in a middle school, and helping out with our school's athletic programs, I see the importance of teaching life lessons everyday…
