“A team’s success is mostly measured by its season record and overall amount of victories, yet winning is only a minor part of success. Success alone does not make a team great until it is paired with effective coaching. Effective coaching runs deeper than wins and losses, it also includes reaching athletes on an individual level. Coaches who focus on positive, personal relationships with their athletes are insuring success beyond their record on the field.” This is from a blog for Ohio University and I could not have stated it any better.
This week Ed Singler will be continuing the long-standing tradition of bringing together our Valley’s 4 high school football coaches to discuss this year’s season. For those of you that did not know, Ed played football for Oregon State and his brother, Bill, played football for Stanford. I can only imagine the rivalry between a Beaver and a Cardinal in the Singler family! Brother Bill is now the head coach at South Medford. Ed shared with me that it seems his brother, Bill, got the brains in the family, but clearly he got the good looks! Brothers…..
Coaches have the ability to impart a lifelong impact on their athletes in relation to their morals, strength of character, leadership abilities, working in a team, and even future relationships. We are lucky as a community to have these 4 coaches in the lives of our young athletes as the role models they are.
Please join me in an afternoon of football and Rotary Fellowship! This is one meeting you will not want to miss!
Yours in Rotary Service,
Michelle Corradetti, President
