Some people don’t always like a coach they might have, but for me that is a different story. My coach is a hero of mine. My coach is not like other coaches; he isn’t as strict as a lot of other coaches are. My coach is one of the nicest guys I have ever met. His name is John Sears, but I like to call him Johnny John John. Coach Sears is a fun loving guy, but he can be stern when he has to be. I never seem to be able to be in a bad mood around Coach, and I never seem to get mad at him. In addition to that he is just a big loveable teddy bear type of guy. He is the funniest man I know, and he is loud and sarcastic which I love. John is always pushing me to do my best. At a time when I thought I might quit soccer he was there to tell me don’t quit, you are a great player and you shouldn’t quit. He was then tougher on me, but his toughness taught me a lot of soccer skills, and life skills. My coach at times might not be really hard on me, but there are times where he is, and has been. John has had an amazing impact on my life because he is the funniest guy I know, he is like a second father to me, and he is always there to encourage and be tough on me when I need it.
My coach John Sears has made me laugh every time I have seen him. I have had days where I just don’t feel like laughing or smiling, but if I’m around John after one of those days he always lifts my spirits. I have a different kind of sense of humor then a lot of other people. John also has a sense of humor like mine. I feel he has had an impact on the reason I try to make people laugh. John knows just what to say to me when I need a good laugh. I appreciate him trying to make me laugh when I need it the most. The humor John has has really helped me smile about things that have really brought me down.
Some days when my dad is at work, and he isn’t here to talk to that day, I just need someone else to step in and be that father figure for the day. “ Hey Stitz! What’s wrong? Sit down, and talk with me, and tell me what’s up.” That’s just what I needed John to say that day, and I didn’t even have to tell him I needed that. Some days are hard with my dad working second shift. Where I only get to see him on the weekends. Having to go all week without seeing him is hard, and sometimes I need to just talk to a guy. That guy always seems to be John. John is always there for me when I need that father figure. He listens when I need to just talk, and he is there to give advice when I need it. Some days will just be bad, but I know if there is ever a day where I can’t talk to my dad, Coach will always be there for me. Whether he is just listening to me talk or actually giving me advice I know that he will always be that father figure for me if I need him to be.
One day I thought I had enough, and I just didn’t want to play soccer anymore, but I was told to never quit anything. “Stitz you aren’t a quitter. Never quit anything you do. Quitters never win.” John is always pushing me to do my best no matter what it is. He is always telling me to do my best on the field, and in the classroom. Since John wants me to always do my best he is very tough on me sometimes. He is always pushing me harder and harder until I succeed in whatever I’m doing. There for if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t give my all in everything.
My coach at times might not be really hard on me, but there are times where he is, and has been. John has had an amazing impact on my life because he is the funniest guy I know, he is like a second father to me, and he is always there to encourage and be tough on me when I need it. My coach John Sears is very important to me because he has taught me a lot, and has been there for me when I needed him to be. He has taught me lessons and values that I will never forget. John Sears has taught me to have a sense of humor, to do my best in everything I do, and to never quit. These lessons will help me in the future because I will never forget them. He has taught lessons and values that will help me succeed in everything I do in my life whatever that may be.
