“My favorite part of coaching was giving every player a high five as they went on or came off the field. Their favorite part was the team cheer: ‘1-2-3 Go WESTWOODS!’
I barely knew anything about soccer, but I do love teamwork and honesty and respect, so we talked about that a lot during our practices. I saw a lot of kids grow into team players and that was inspiring enough to be happy with my choice to coach.”
