Ever since I arrived at the high school, there has been one man that was my teacher, coach and friend when I needed one. This is coming from a person you really wouldn’t expect to be be this person in your life. Coach Minnich, Mr. Minnich, Ryan Minnich, (only off school grounds). The high school life has been a struggle, but he has made it a little easier.
And when things get harder or easier for me in life the things that he taught me I will always remember and never forget them this gave me a huge understanding of the people that just wanna become better, and those who dont wanna get better and achieve nothing. This goes from my intro from In These Girls, Hope is a Muscle. This shows how the captain of the team was pushing the team, and my personal mentor would be my coach on the way he pushed my team to finally win a state championship from the last state title being over 30 years ago
He used to take me to the courthouse and point at the judge and say “that will be you when you grow up”. It also brings to mind the power of believing in people. As a child all i needed was one person to motivate me and i tried my best to be the best at what i do. I see motivating as a great leadership
He showed me how to control a soccer game from playing football. He should me communication. La didn 't have a team at the time but that didn 't mean there wasn 't any football here. We had the national champ trojans in USC, honestly i was hooked to this team. Having too crazy fast running backs Reggie Bush and LenDale White.
Herb Brooks was an American Ice Hockey player and coach. Although he was a great player, people will always remember him for his coaching style. Herb Brooks was an incredible leader; he saw in his teams what many could not see. In the 1980 Winter Olympics, Herb Brooks put together a team of college kids to take on the best hockey team in the world, The Soviet Union. This dramatic win was dubbed the “Miracle on Ice” and is still remembered as one of the greatest moments in sports history. Great coaches do one thing better than most, they know how to win, but sometimes the wins are not what defines a great coach. Herb Brooks had a vision and he pushed his players to the max so they would believe that they had what it takes. The following qualities are what made Herb Brooks a great coach.
He also taught me to stay motivated no matter how many times I wanted to give up because of my mistakes. I remember the day like it was yesterday even though it was eighteen years ago. This is one of the proudest moments in my life. It’s a lesson that I’ll never forget. Being taught how to ride a bike for the first time was exciting.
North Andrew hadn’t been to a state championship game since the early 90’s. This isn’t acceptable in a small football town like mine. Everyone knew something had to change. It wasn’t until my sophomore year in 2012 that we finally made it back to a state championship. We had a new coach that year and a lot of talent. Our new coach worked our butts off, harder than any other 8 man team in the state. This was difficult for all of us but we later learned that hard work really pays off.
By the time in middle school, Mr. Bass became my mentor. Through his guidance, I develop a more appreciative perspective on the struggles that my mother went through to provide for me. He knew my passion was to help others, so he enlightened me about the concept of capacity building. At my age, I thought it was amazing to have people skills. Together with Community Action for Teens, they showed me that there is more to life than academics through community service and leadership skills.
Now I am on the high school dance team. Which wouldn’t have happened had I not fallen in love with the sport at such a young age. My teacher sparked a fire inside me which would not be easily put out. So, as you can imagine, I had a hard time with all of it. Because without her, I would definitely not the person and dancer I am today.

When I was 7 years old I went to my first high school game with my mom, the teams that played were Roosevelt and Flower. I will never forget that day Sept 8th at 8PM friday night lights. My older cousin Brett Pierce was the starting Cornerback for flowers, I admired him because he the starting Corner and he was ranked #23 in the Nation for his position. My cousin ended the game with 18 tackles, 4 interceptions, and 3 forced fumbles that was one of the greatest days of my life. After the game was over I asked my mom could she sign me up to play football, she told me I wasn’t big enough. My mother is very over protective of me since I am her only son.
He would always come over and talk to Brogan and I. My 9th Grade year during track Jake really helped me with the 300 hurdles, he kept showing me ways to keep my arms down as I was running so I didn’t look like a bird. Jake supported me with my move to Iron Mountain when everyone else thought I was dumb and was just going to end up failing anyways. Jake was a very big impact on my life with how he carried himself and how he treated others.
