Coach


The athlete stands proudly in the gym;
“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the Attempt”
It matters little if it is basketball, archery, bowling or a swim;
With encouragement, no-one has to be exempt

Big yellow buses come and go;
Peaceful, kind, cooperative, safe, at-large;
Whether it is sunshine, clouds, rain or snow;
Witness the tall quiet leadership of a man-in-charge.

Bocce or fishing could be on the schedule.
These changes don’t phase him a bit.
Watch him work and observe if you will;
The exemplary role model is ready and fit.

What does it mean to be Coach Green?
I just isn’t as easy as it would seem.
Dollars to doughnuts, it will nearly always be true;
The best thing is to stop and ask, “What would Coach Green do?”

You are above reproach;
Character counts here at the Neu;
One thing is for certain Coach;
Next year and beyond, we will most certainly miss you. 

(c) 2017 Wes Morgan 
Wishing Coach Patrick Green all the best 
in retirement as the school year comes to a close.
