In celebration of National Coaches Day, we will be highlighting some coaches that have made an impact on our team members at Lloyd Sports + Engineering.
Our first coaches highlight is Coach Mortensen at Adams State University, by Jane Theobald.
"Instead of cutting me from the program my freshman year, Coach Mortensen gave me the choice to be a practice player, so my whole freshman year, I spent participating in drills, but sitting or standing on the sidelines next to the coaches. I learned that practice doesn't make perfect, but PERFECT practice makes perfect. I also learned to never cut corners, both in running laps and in life. To this day, I still don't cut corners while walking on sidewalks. I learned high expectations of myself and my team. It's been 17 years since I've played for her and I am still learning the impact she had on me. Thank you Coach Mortensen!"
