    Michelle Abshire on how she instills and models passion and dedication

    Michelle Abshire on how she instills and models passion and dedication

    Michelle Abshire
    Volleyball, Blue Valley West HS, MAVS, Blue Valley Rec
    Coach Abshire’s podcast interview (coming soon)
    What was shared about Coach Abshire:
    Michelle Abshire is a passionate, hard-working, and dedicated coach. She has been a staple on the volleyball sidelines for decades. Her passion for the sport is contagious, inspiring her team to push beyond their limits and strive for excellence on and off the court. She is fiercely competitive, but she is equally as loving and caring. She prepares her student-athletes for the highest level of competition by developing their skills, teaching them a variety of game strategies, and building their confidence to face any challenge that comes their way. Coach Abshire is one of the most successful coaches in our area (and nationally), but the wins and losses do not define how impactful she truly is. She spends countless hours fostering positive relationships with her players, shaping their character, and mentoring them so they may enjoy continued success outside of the game. Michelle goes above and beyond to ensure that her players feel supported and valued. She is a remarkable coach and I support her wholeheartedly for the Community for Coaches Coach of the Year award.

    Jerald Long on having a father's heart as a coach

    Jerald Long on having a father's heart as a coach

    Jerald Long
    Football, Track, Pleasant Ridge MS
    Coach Long’s podcast interview (coming soon)
    What was shared about Coach Long: Jerald Long goes above and beyond to make better athletes and better people. He’s not just about winning games; he’s about building character, discipline, and resilience in every player. You can ask anyone who has ever been around Coach Long or has had kids coached by him and you’ll hear story after story about how he’s impacted their lives in a positive way. It’s not just the victories, it’s the personal growth, the lessons in accountability, and the way he turns challenges into opportunities for his athletes. But it’s not just about the sports. Coach Long is a rockstar teacher at Pleasant Ridge, and his positive influence extends to every staff member. He’s the kind of guy who practices what he preaches — the values he talks to students about, he lives by them every day. Additionally, Coach Long isn’t just a mentor when it comes to sports. He extends his guidance to fellow coaches, including myself. He’s been a huge influence in our lives, especially in navigating the challenges of becoming new parents. Coach Long is incredibly supportive and insistent on prioritizing our kids and families while finding a balance. There isn’t a thing I could ask Coach Long for help with that he wouldn’t drop everything to assist us with. He even holds a standing offer to babysit our kids so that his coaches can enjoy date nights with our spouses. So, when you talk about Coach of the Year, Coach Long isn’t just a nominee, he’s the heart of Pleasant Ridge, shaping lives and making a difference that goes way beyond any game. https://communityforcoaches.org/2024-coach-of-the-year-finalists/
