I feel really fortunate that I have been able to be a role model and positive influence in so many girls lives over the years. The most rewarding thing for me is seeing someone through the full four years and how excited they are to say, Coach, I got accepted to these colleges and this is what I'm going to do! when I knew them back as a freshman when they were trying to just get their feet beneath them.
