Leadership In Coaching And Life

When I had finished my tour with The United States Marine Corps I traveled here to Washington State to begin my education at Eastern Washington University.

I had been involved with the sport of wrestling my whole life and wanted to continue doing that as I began another part of my life. This journey began when I was six years old. Wrestlers from the local high school in my home town of Canonsburg, Pennsylvania would come to our houses and get us to wrestle in the evening. They would also make sure we got home as well. It was a great experience for all of us.

This was the beginning of an experience that led to almost forty years of coaching both in Washington and Idaho.

Things that I learned from the sport of wrestling and the United States Marine Corps greatly influenced my life and the way that I lived it.

  • I learned that you must identify your goals and tasks and set up ways to accomplish them. You need to do that to give yourself structure.
  • Find the possibilities to accomplish your goals. There is often a number of different ways to go about it.
  • Find out what is working and what is not.
  • Continually asses your progress and the next step.
  • Move forward with those people who want to go in the direction you are moving.
  • Above all find those who are willing to lend a hand.

    Put good people around you!

  • Find those that have good character: honest, reliable, communicate, and are resilient.
  • People who are not afraid of hard work and will sacrifice for the "good of the team."

    Find Team Players: We are all on someone's team, whether it is in the military, or as a citizen, a member of the community or your own family.
