Fast forward through high school, we can rewind back to that at a later date. For now, just want to keep you interested by making sure you know this story doesn’t have a sad ending, actually it is quite the opposite.
Sure, I didn’t reach my goals throughout my playing career, but I have prepared myself for quite the jumpstart in the coaching field. I began coaching with the showcase team that I played for, the nationally renowned Evoshield Canes, and then I worked with Broughton High School, followed by a job offer at the school my playing career started at, NC State.
It was a wonderful season and a great experience. A varying amount of scenarios arrived that I was able to witness veterans of their profession handle them in quite the mature and professional manner, allowing myself to make personal notes in my head of how to handle rain delays, roster moves, recruiting and how to run practice.
The one thing that seems to always be a mystery is how to get players to understand the moment and their opportunities and how NOT to take things like that for granted.
