Tom Kehl – father of Jason, who I coached in soccer and baseball

“Hustle and Attitude” changed my son’s approach and outlook to youth athletics. My oldest son, Jason, played one season of baseball with Coach Millette. At 11 years old, Jason was athletic, but still trying to figure out how to contribute to the team. Coach Millette made it very simple for him. He clearly explained that there were several things in baseball out of his control, and he needed to not worry about those. Instead, focus on the things you could control. Jason asked what those were, and Coach Millette simply answered “hustle and attitude”. Those two things he explained would take him far in sports, and in life. Six years later, Jason is the starting varsity quarterback and varsity catcher, to a great extent the result of his work ethic. I attribute a great deal of this success to Coach Millette’s positive coaching philosophy. He has had a tremendous influence on my son’s development and ultimate success.
