The Lasting Power of a Coach's Words

“It’s not the skills you teach. It’s the words you use that are your legacy; your everlasting gift to the future of your youth athletes.”

Coach Reed explains that skills can be soon forgotten, but words will always be remembered. "To get in touch with Coach Reed please visit his twitter profile or his website at: @coach_reed or"
