I had the chance to speak at a leadership breakfast yesterday for the Emerald Heights Academy. I was able to share stories of my past career in athletics about life lessons, leadership and faith. During the breakfast, there were two middle school kids that gave speeches about leadership. I was blown away by how poised and carefully crafted their speeches were. You are doing a great job Emerald Heights Academy!
I had the privilege to speak to a 9th grade basketball team last night. It was inspiring to see the hope and willingness in their eyes to become better athletes and men. I love the side of athletics that teaches you life lessons while you play your sport. The lessons that you learn in sports are used every day in normal situations. What a great way to help prepare for life.
