This is Kaashief…

KM HK

Met Kaashief when he just started in middle school…

Told him, like I tell every child, that there was nothing he couldn’t accomplish. “Make a plan, write it down, work hard at it and whatever your dreams are will become your reality.”

Watched him win. MVPs. Championships. Nothing but win.

When he graduated from the team he came back and coached. He taught children how to run like he did. Children that would go on to the Junior Olympics. Nothing but win.

Went off to run track in high school. All league. All County. All Long Island. Penn Relays. So much more. Nothing but win.

Told him that one day he would run for us in the Olympics. And he will. And when he does I let him know that I will be there holding his luggage for him. And I will.

But for right now, for today, he’s got to do whatever it is that homecoming kings do. Nothing but win.

This is Kaashief…

This is why I coach…
