What a Miracle!

Welcome to Interview #74.

It is my pleasure to introduce you to Coaches Dan and Lorelee (Smith) Friend and their beautiful daughter Rae Analyn. Rae was born four months premature on June 5, 2016. Dan and Lorelee are the men's and women's volleyball coaches respectively at Lewis University.

In this Christmas season it is good to slow down, reflect on and give thanks for what we have. Take a few minutes to read Dan and Lorelee’s story. It will touch you deeply as well.

I came across Dan, Lorelee and Rae’s story in Volleyball Magazine. I reached out to them, because their story is one which involves two what-a-miracle-4amazing college coaches, married, coaching at the same school and with a beautiful daughter.

Their story goes beyond volleyball and beyond sport. I often tell my soccer teams, the game is fun and important, but it is after all just a game. There are moments of joy and adversity in all of our lives. While many athletes, parents and coaches often get wrapped up in being successful in their sport, sometimes we are reminded, there is more to life than sport.

Dan and Lorelee's amazing coaching bios are at the end of the interview.

Florida State TrackWelcome to Interview #59.

I am pleased to share with you the wisdom of NCAA Division 1 Track and Field Coach of Florida State University, Bob Braman.

Since taking over in 2004, Bob Braman has seen the Seminoles ascend to a position of national prominence, highlighted by a pair of NCAA Outdoor Championships in 2006 and and 2008.
 
Entering the 2015-16 season, the FSU men have finished fourth or better seven times at the last 11 NCAA Outdoor Championships and fifth or better six times at the last nine NCAA Indoor Championships.

Simply put, the Seminoles are synonymous with success on the national stage.

Over the course of Braman’s first 12 years, the Seminole men have accepted nine Atlantic Coast Conference indoor and 11 conference outdoor championship trophies, including a sweep of the 2014 titles. In 24 combined team championship opportunities, FSU's men have 19 ACC championships and five runner-up finishes.

The Florida State women have been building their own impressive ACC resume as well. With their 2016 ACC Outdoor Championships title, the Seminole women have now won four conference titles outdoors, including three under Braman’s watch.

FSU’s excellence has allowed Braman to stockpile a total of 36 national, regional and conference Coach of the Year honors.

Through the relentless efforts of the coaching staff under his direction, the Seminole brand extends well beyond the borders. Twelve student-athletes who competed collegiately for the Seminoles participated in the 2012 London Olympics. It marked the second consecutive Summer Games the `Noles were represented by a dozen Olympians.
