And the kids are the future, using sport to show kids where hard work, dedication,commitment,respect, and faith can take you in sport and in life. Once a kid believes, the sky is the limit!! And this is what this man stands for, and I will always back him up and help his athletes.

While written with the student-athlete in mind, Winning Moments is a valuable tool for anyone who is willing to set aside a few minutes each week to strengthen themselves spiritually and mentally. As Coach Carp is fond of saying, “What’s true in sports is true in the game of life.”
