Coach Keith is just an awesome person. I've known him as my daughter's soccer coach for years now, but I think anyone can tell right after meeting him that he is the type of guy who will always do the right thing and help out anyone. He has the most amazing patience with the girls on the team. They are currently teenagers and tend to get a little...teenagerish. Keith always treats them with respect and kindness and never loses his cool. After a game, whether they've won or lost, the girls always know he's proud of them. He goes above and beyond to take care of them. They never have to bring their own water to practice or games. Three times a week he will wash each girl's water bottle and fill a jug with water, ice and just the right amount of lemon. He'll wait in the heat or the dark with the last girl to go home after practice and carry the injured ones off of the game field. When one of the players was very ill, but still wanted to participate, he went out of his way to include her and made her team captain. Coach always includes any younger sisters or brothers that want to join practice. When your kids play team sports, you can witness some pretty bad behavior in coaches and parents. In his career in law enforcement, I'm sure Keith can get tired of dealing with problem people. You would never know it. No matter what the situation, he has always been an excellent example of good sportsmanship and class. Our family thinks he's a hero because he's the kind, caring, helpful and upstanding type of person you just don't see enough of.
