What will always be important to me is helping others. Part of my life has always been about community involvement, starting out as a "Big Brother" in college. Even in the high pressure environment of Washington, D.C., I tried to find time to volunteer, back then helping coach baseball in northern Virginia. Once back in Gainesville, my coaching has continued. As basketball coach (of a sport I truly love), I am constantly trying to teach our next generation not only how to be successful, but how to do it right. I have had the good fortune of coaching basketball in recreational leagues, at the high school level, and at Santa Fe Community College. I have learned many lessons from basketball that I apply to my legal practice, including that one size does not fit all (either in coaching or in law). While my teams have generally been pretty successful (and have won, on average, over 80% of their games and many championships), one of my greatest achievements is simply getting "kids" to recognize they can achieve through hard work and practice. For example, as a high school girls' basketball coach for many years, I have taught all of my players to make left hand layups (i.e., with their non-dominant hand); to me, that is really how I measure success. I have always told my players that "God gave you a left hand to make layups!" and I am proud to say that most of my players, whether the star player or the bench warmer, has learned to do so even at crucial times in games.
