When coaching pays off

As a soccer coach, wins are fun and losses are tough, but it’s off the field accomplishments that make me the proudest.  Over the weekend, one of my captains did me proud.

Tomas Garcia accomplished something no one in his family has ever done. On Saturday, he graduated from the Denver School of Science and Technology (DSST) with the hope of becoming an architect.

Excellent news, but they didn’t report that Tomas was one of only a few graduates to not only win a state ACE scholarship but receive a national ACE scholarship as well.

Great job Tomas!!
