Just got this sent to me by reader Wendy Tindall — and love this story.  Here’s to all the coaches out there.

From Wendy, who’s hero is Doug Messeck:

Doug has become someone that I am glad my sons look up to, and a man I can point to and tell my daughter—“find someone like him!”.  He has given them confidence in their abilities and strength in their character.  Very few men are able to convey such a no-nonsense attitude and still let the kids know they matter and are special!  Who is he……the little league coach I was lucky enough to have my kids play for.  Thanks Doug!

    Hi Brad – a mututal friend of ours, Kirsti G., shared your web site with me, and I look forward to reading your book. Since “heroes” is the subject of your book, and this particular thread, I wanted to share my last blog with you at A bit of a different take on the subject, but from the heart. I hope to meet you someday. Sincerely, Valerie Ormond
