Friday Night Lights- Game Two

posted on: Friday, September 7, 2012

Friday Night Lights.
This is our life.
Our livelyhood.
I've thought alot lately about coaching being Trav's profession
There's not alot of money in it.
The hours are long.
Why do we do what we do?
 
Tonight as the National Anthem was being played and I looked
 at the row of players on the field I couldn't help but swell with pride.
Pride for my husband.
Pride for the boys and the team as a whole.
 
That moment solidified what I already knew.
We do what we do because it makes a difference.
 
Each boy has a different story.
Each boy has a different need.
 
Impacting their lives is why he does what he does.
 
I am so proud of my husband for the hard work he puts in day after day.
Not only to provide for our family but to make a difference in the lives of these young men.
 
And the cherry on top tonight....
a HUGE win :)

  1. Does he teach full-time, too? Or do coaches in TX "just" coach? Or does he see coaching as his primary focus, but teaches to bring in the $$ all year long?

    Just curious . . . being that my husband was a teacher and coach for many years.

  5. my brother coaches football too. it's really a passion of his and if he could make a living doing it he would. but like you said it's not much money and long hours so he has to work full time somewhere else. but that doesn't stop him from doing something he loves tremendously! i'm a very proud sister of him for following his dream and helping shape the lives of those boys on his team!
