My players are always cross-trained and able to play multiple positions. I don’t teach one position robots, I teach my players to understand different aspects and positions of the game. Seeing a players development both mentally and physically playing the game is why I coach. I love to be a positive force in these young woman’s lives. Improvement is what I am after. If I can teach these kids anything, it is making sure they give 100% effort in everything they do. “
