Blog Post #1….”Who I am”

May 9, 2019

To say that “life is a journey” is not only an understatement, it’s also an approach – it’s a way to look at the world through a pair of glasses that gives you clarity. My own voyage has been, and continues to be an adventure, and I look forward to sharing it with you.

I’ve been blessed to do exactly what I love for practically half of my life – the past 25 years. That love is coaching the incredible game of basketball. I’ve been fortunate to experience it from the Division 3 level all the way to the screaming arenas of the Big Ten Conference. If you ever used to sleep with your basketball when you were a kid, you know what that kind of love feels like. Coaching has given me amazing relationships, breathtaking experiences, some of the highest highs and lowest lows, taught me priceless life lessons, and allowed me to travel all over the world. I never could have prepared myself for all of the adventures the game of basketball would take me on.

Through this blog, I won’t aspire to solve the world’s problems or reinvent the wheel. What I hope to do with anything I say or share, is to show you how the last 25 years (and counting) has something in it that you can relate to and connect with. One day it may make you laugh, another day you may shed a tear. It may even give you a different life perspective to help solve a problem. Finally, it may just tell a story. Actually, we’re all just “2 legged stories”; with pages constantly flipping as we walk through this crazy world.

Ultimately, my hope is that if one person, just one, is inspired or touched, then this blog’s mission will be accomplished…..let’s do this.

For the Love of the Game,
