Hillsdale Head Coach Keith Otterbein recently shared with the Hillsdale Gridiron Club his core reasons for coaching
My Purpose as a Coach
I coach to help my players become better men by teaching and demonstrating the positive characteristics of dedication, discipline, sacrifice, and integrity in all phases of their lives. By sharing my faith and modeling a single-mindedness in pursuit of our goals, I will display empathy, honesty, and integrity and lead our players to be responsible for their own actions. The high standards set and life lessons learned in our program will allow players to experience success both on the field and in the classroom during their college experience and help them become better husbands, fathers, employees, members of a community, and church members who will positively change the world.
Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord, and not for men.
