Cleveland and the PIL prepared me for the future and my current position in the coaching world. Competition and the challenge to be the best at what ever I do has become part of my coaching philosophy. I feel it is important to teach young men to be the best on the field and off the field. Being a good student, a good person, and making the right choices in life are all part of being a well rounded athlete.
