To me, being a coach is providing my kids with a role model and steady figure in their lives to count on no matter what. I make sure I am there for the girls that I committed to, and give them an outlet for their day to day stresses. I always take time to ask them how they are doing- no matter what. A few of the girls will ask for help with their homework since no one at home can. I stress the importance to try their hardest in every aspect of their lives.

I am Nick Drew, senior football player at Campbell University looking to one day become a Division 1 Football Head Coach. What I want in life is for my family and I to be happy and successful. I think those are two of the biggest, yet simplest things about life. If I’m happy and successful then I believe that everything else will fall into place.

If I have to choose a favorite sport it would have to be football. Football is physical hard-hitting contact sport that is full of excitement rooting for my home team the New York Jets. Back in 1997 is where I developed a full interest; watching and playing football at a young age. I have played fullback and linebacker both positions took a lot of hard work, conditioning, and practice to execute my performance on the field.
Coaching has been a big part of our history, throughout history there have been some great coaches/leader and there also have been some very bad/ coaches. An example of a great leader in history is Franklin D Roosevelt. An example of a bad leader in history is Adolf Hitler because of what he did. In history, what does it take to be a good coach and what does it take to be a bad coach.
I think one of the things I learned/realized the most the crazy hours that are put in by upper-level coaches. It would not be crazy for a football coach to put in over 100 hours in a week during the prime of football season. That is insane! However, if it’s what you love then you expect that.
A coach should work hard to improve their players’ athletic abilities but be willing to take the time to stress the importance of being a good person. A coach has such a unique opportunity to reach kids through sports and should use their platform to prepare and develop kids for lives outside of sports. Coaches can do this by expecting certain ethical behaviors and by relating the sport to life. There are many metaphors that relate sports to life and they should be used to help athletes understand how they can use the valuable lessons from the sport they play to be better people. My baseball coach would often compare how baseball relates to life.

There are two to four million coaches throughout the United States. Less than 20% of these coaches have received any type of training (Anderson, 2012). Most youth sports coaches around America have parents as the coach of the team. This can be a problem due to the favoring of playing time and a lack of training as well. Athletes need to be trained and coached by individuals who are going to make them better both on and off the court.
SOAR Essay “ A coach is someone who tells you what you don't want to hear, who has to see what you don't want to see, so you can be who you always known you could be.” Tom Landry, one of the greatest football coaches of all time, said this is what it takes to be a coach.
