This weekend Asbury University Eagles participated in the ITA Regional Tournament in Georgetown, Kentucky.
The weather challenged the tournament. Matches were scheduled for 8AM and play finished at midnight on Thursday and Friday nights. By Saturday morning the players and most of the coaches were dragging.
One coach stood out to me as a great encourager. He was tall and loud on a foggy morning where most of the players looked like they'd rather be sleeping.
He clapped for his kids. He encouraged them. He had kids on more than one court, and he even called out encouraging words to the girls three courts away.
If his kids lost a point but played hard he still encouraged them. Up or down, he was there with something good to say to get them pumped.
I'd like to be as encouraging to others, as I saw this man.
I hope you have a great week.
