well, that’s the end of the season for me. i learned one thing: kids are weird. it was like they wanted to lose. they came to practice, went through the motions, and went home. i have three kids who hate to lose and have that fire, and they are all sophmores (edit:two sophs and a freshman). next year they’ll be all right. the head coach is leaving next year, and he is going to tell the AD to clean house for the new coach. i’m leaving for school next year (miami baybee!) so… that’s the end of my term.
truthfully, i am sick and tired of coaching. if i were to come back next year, i would shrink the sprint corps to about 30 kids, max. most of the time i argued with kids who thought they knew what workouts they should be doing. other kids showed up twice a week. i tried to get the head coach to kick them off, because they hurt the morale of kids who came to practice. i can’t believe the attitudes of the kids. last year, i NEVER showed the amount of disrespect the kids did to me.
so what now? i would love to coach again, and i think i got a lot out of this year. i swear to God, nothing like this will ever happen again under my watch.
