We made it! As I said on Saturday, thanks again for the privilege of coaching your boys over this past season.
As you begin the mourning process of regaining your Tuesday/Thursday evenings and Saturdays/Sundays (😉), a few final thoughts...
First, sincere thanks for all the kind words, cards, and generous gifts that I somehow collated on Saturday. I’m new enough at this to say with integrity that they were as completely unexpected as they were unnecessary, but I appreciate each one of them. Thank you.
Second, and per the forecast on our first day together, we had three primary goals heading into this season:
1) To stay safe during these unprecedented times (by God’s grace, check!).
2) To have a team full of boys anxious to play again next season/year (I sure hope so).
3) To learn the fundamentals of the game and get a little better along the way (for sure!).
If these metrics are any indicator, I'm certainly chalking up the season as primarily a success.
If we missed anything of consequence, it was a team photo! 🤦🏼♂️. My bad. I meant to rally the boys for a few quick shots game after game and never managed to do so. Thus, I have a simple request. If you've captured any moments that your family would be willing to share (yes, Mrs. Geist - I’m looking at you - 🙂), please add them to the shared Dropbox folder that I’ve just created here (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ozpuct4x5ohbqx5/AAD0gWqggIYt_3pSKDoF_AHQa?dl=0).
Finally, and as they say, stay positive and test negative over these winter months and I certainly hope to see your families again in the days and years ahead. Be well...
