What does your coach do that makes him/her a great coach?

Bruce always tries his best to be a part of his athletes’ lives as best as he can. The relationship Bruce has built with them is what makes being one of his athletes so special.

What lesson(s) has your coach instilled in you?

Although I’ve only known Bruce for 2 years, he has taught me to never give up on anything that I believe in and no matter what, just do the best that you can because at the end of the day that’s all that matters.

What is something that reminds you of your coach?

Anything ‘goofy’ really because Bruce has a ‘goofy’ personality and I love that we’re able to joke around with each other.

What animal would your coach be and why?

Giraffe. Not only because Bruce is tall but because he sees above all and always looks for the positives in everything and anyone.
