There are only a few people that you love dearly and that it hurts when you have to let them go.
My coach is one of them.
I guess it is not because that I know him that well or he knows me that well but I guess that love stems from the respect, charisma and the love he selflessly exudes to his athletes. It is the selfless trait that he has that really show us the amount of care and concern he has for each and every one of us.
Aside from that, he is a man that can lead and motivate a team. The resounding words you hear will motivate you to move higher and be better. He will always encourage you as much as you want to be encouraged. He will get angry at you for not trying your best and even so, he’ll push you to greater heights. Due to the huge amount of respect you have for you, you are afraid to disappoint him and so, you try harder.
Due to certain circumstances, he has to step back as the coach and I’m really heartbroken to say that. He has been a joy to us all and I believe all of us will miss him dearly.
I just don’t know what else to say other than that he has been a role model to me and a person that I truly look up to. He is a really good person to model after and I really hope that I can be as selfless as him one day, insyaAllah.
