Now, I have an amazing opportunity to work with athletes who will be in my shoes when they finish their high school years playing their favorite sport. I love working with the athletes that come into our facility because I not only get the opportunity to impact their lives by guiding them in the right direction at becoming the best athletes possible, but I get to build strong interpersonal relationships with them as well.”
