About this title


This is my story of twenty-eight years of coaching high school sports and dealing with success, frustration, failures, adversity, and building relationships along the way. It is also about losing some of those relationships, worrying about all of the what-ifs, and second guessing the things that were done. Before it was over, I was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer and once again faced frustrations and adversity; even so, a strengthened faith and an overwhelming support system helped me deal with it. In the blink of an eye, those twenty-eight years were put into perspective, and things that I had once thought were important were not. It was the life lessons that I tried to impart to those that I taught and coached that best serve me now and hopefully can give you perspective as well.

About the Author:

Robin David Drake served in the US Navy right out of high school and then was a police officer for one year following that. But he finally found his passion teaching and coaching. He taught for twenty-two years, leading elementary and high school students in physical education during his early years and finishing up teaching health and driver's education at the high school level. He has coached volleyball, basketball, and golf. He married his high school sweetheart thirty-seven years ago, and they have three children and seven grandchildren. He recently retired from teaching after being diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. Because he was a non-smoker, the diagnosis was a big surprise and has caused him to step back and look at what is important in his life.
