Doug HUNT Bear River High School Basketball The passion for the game of basketball, the players I coach and the competition we prepare for drives me every single day. I believe in the grit and the grind that molds and defines the character that we display every day both on and off the court. I love the toughness, both mental and physical, that is required to be successful at basketball and in life. I love teaching the correlation between the requirements necessary to excel in athletics and excel in life. Each player making a personal resolve to stand up and be accounted for and take the personal responsibility to make a positive difference to the team, sacrificing the personal agenda, is what I strive to coach into each player.
Shad Park The reason most people fail rather than succeed is they give up what they want most for what they want at the moment.
Deb Labrum Union High School Baseball, Basketball, Football Trust and Respect the Process.
