A thank you to all the great coaches


OTTUMWA — Youth sports programs are important to many young people in our area. Sports programs offer opportunites to young people of all walks of life, opportunies that they might otherwise not get in life. The people that we call “coach” are important role models to these young people. I would like to thank all those great “coaches” out there that give their time to mentor these young people. Coaches encourage good sportsmanship and reward those who have a good work ethic. Reward comes by allowing them to play and being part of a team. Hard work pays off both on and off the field. Thanks to all those great coaches out there!
