What you are looking forward to coaching at TVCC:
"I am looking forward to being a part of the program, the school as a whole and finally this great community. It is filled with supportive and motivated individuals who want success throughout all the programs of our institute. I am eager to set an example of excellence and strength. Our incoming staff will bring similar values that will help guide this program towards a culture of champions. The main thing I am looking forward to seeing is, what each student-athlete achieves as a player/teammate and what incredible young women they all will become."
