1. Q. How Long you've been coaching?

A. I have been coaching 32 years.

2. Q. How many kids you have?

A. I have three children, Kaley, Kyler, Jace.

3. Q. What do you enjoy being a coach and father to your son (s) /daughter (s)?

A. I always enjoyed watching my children be competitive and being able to talk with them about their activities outside of practice.

4. Q. What were the challenges you had to overcome of balancing being a coach and being a dad?

A. The biggest challenge was the amount of time that I had to spend away from the kids. It was difficult to miss some of their activities when they were younger because I was preparing my team to play. When they were younger it was hard to not coach them from the sidelines when I was not actually their coach and someone else was coaching them.

5. Q. What are your favorite moments as a dad and a coach?

A. Kaley- Getting to watch her run and do well at the state track meet. Kyler- Hugging after winning state championships in 2014 and 2015. Jace- Watching him be a great teammate after they lost their state semi-final football game.

6. Q. How long you've been married?

A. We have been married 32 years.

7. Q. How does your wives/spouse play a role in keeping the family together.

A. Cindy has played a big role because she does a great job of getting the kids to all of their activities when I was not around and she has been understanding about the time that it takes to do this job.

8. Q. What advice would you give to the young coaches who are about to be fathers in the near future?

A. Enjoy your kids because the time you spend with them in their activities is over in a heartbeat.
