I have a lot of people who influence my life in different ways, and my basketball coach is only one of them. Everyone on the team would agree that we have never had a coach who was as invested in our off court lives as well as on court. Everyone needs someone to turn to when they're going through a rough spot, and time and time again my coach has been there for me. He's helped me realize that I do not always have to please people, I have to be comfortable with my own mind, I will make mistakes but I have to keep looking forward, and that I should invest my time in those who would make the effort to invest the time in with me. Always look for people with a good heart.
