Mike has always stated that his coaching passion is based in the desire to serve the mission of sharing the gospel of Christ, and work with young men in a very formative time in their life. To train, counsel, and mentor athletes to serve Jesus while engaged in competitive setting provides an exceptional opportunity for them to examine, develop and grow their faith. Helping them to learn to work together, to experience the highs and lows of success and failure, and to learn to recognize the hand of God in their everyday lives, makes every day exciting and rewarding.
