"My dad is the funniest, kindest, most loving and supportive coach and friend I could ever ask for. He has taught me to do things I might never have tried, to really enjoy each moment and to take nothing for granted. His motto is: 'You can sleep when you're dead' and 'Do one thing that scares you every day.' I love him so much."
