In honor of Father’s Day it is time to honor the sports dad. Many times the first coach an athlete has is their father. An athlete’s father can appreciate greater than anyone (except maybe mom) the sacrifice and journey it took to reach that pinnacle sports moment.
The best coach I ever had
My dad was my first coach, and to this day he still says he was “the best coach you ever had.” And I am not going to argue with him, at least not in this post. Regardless, I can only imagine how it would feel to celebrate at the highest level in sports with my first coach, my dad.
