Some of the best coaches I ever had growing up were unpaid volunteers. I wish there were more guys like that around. If you ever get a chance to watch the documentary"Undefeated
" about a volunteer inner-city high school football coach, I highly recommend it. It shows what youth coaching should really be all about.
