Off the Court:  
Mentor:  Brad Smith, taught me what it means to truly "coach". It's not always about the game.
Most Enjoyable Act: Family time, time with my wife, Kristin
What I enjoy most about OCHS:  Commitment to Excellence - the ability to transform tough times into great times.
Goal for the Year: Personal and Spiritual Growth for ALL
Memorable Things:  All the funny and exciting things that happen on our trips and travels than the Championships and Rings. It's about relationships with players and coaches.
 
Special Thanks:  Kristin, who puts up with all the basketball all the time.  Brad Smith and Carl Tinsley, who laid the foundation for the girls many years ago.  All the former players who also helped build the program.  Thanks also to our student manager, Blake Schweitzer, who does all the little behind the scenes and does it very unselfishly.
