Science Instructional Coach & Science Department Chair
With Coach Tom’s guidance, we were able to provide our sons a well-balanced hockey experience from their elementary years through high school. They were athletes, but also band members, and strong students. Tom worked to create a better HUMAN. He was not just about sports. He also cheered on their achievements in soccer, band, and academics….and he does so for both of our sons to this day. Learning to be mindful of life’s options absolutely provided both of our sons with advantages that have transferred to every goal they have undertaken- in high school, college, and now grad school. Both of them have experienced success in the demanding Texas A&M Corps of Cadets. They don’t focus what is not when circumstances become difficult…they build on what is. Thankfully, this was reemphasized in the Corps at A&M, as they were selected to guide underclassmen in their academic and leadership growth. Tom didn’t simply develop hockey players. He developed LEADERS.
The Winning Mindset That Saved My Life allows readers to follow Tom’s journey and challenges as he faced (and defeated!) prostate cancer, as well as to examine their own lives through personal reflection. It is a story of challenge, adversity…encouragement and victory
