My coach, he's become a father figure to me in some ways and i can put everything on me never finding a better one, I'll never have a coach as good as him, one who cares about all of his athletes indivually and sacrfices his time to make us better than anyone could in high school, he's someone anyone would be very lucky to call a coach or a friend. As well as my teammates, the countless blood, sweat, and tears we have everyday together. Pushing ourselves everyday and leaving no one behind,  I'll never find a more memorable group of friends and teammates, this program is everything to me, and my teammates and coach have made it that. And special thanks to my mother, couldn't have done it without you :)
