always had a desire of making a difference in the lives of young
people. His son, Bennett, strongly encouraged him to coach a flag
football team after a particularly disappointing season. Lew took on the
challenge but having no experience in coaching a community league team
and collecting recruits from predominately homeschool & Christian
school circles, it was truly an interesting situation.
One item prevailed. Even though week after week Lew's team did not find victory, there was an essence of teamwork and sportsmanship that was overwhelming and surprising. His team had aGLOW!
Now, only after three years of flag football,
Lew's teams have multiplied and there has been recognition that
players, parents and coaches see that there is a difference of attitude
and desire to improve in the teams of this program that is different
from others in the league. This group has a GLOW, IN THE DARK!
