Huge shoutout to every high school coach in America. Not just football coaches, but every coach that gives of his or her time to help athletes of all ages.

National Coaches Day began in 1972 when then President Richard M. Nixon signed a proclamation establishing October 6th as the day to celebrate those who serve as coaches in all sports.

The proclamation stated, “Coaches are highly qualified teachers—in highly specialized fields. But more than that, they are friends and counselors who help instill in their players important attitudes that will serve them all their lives.”

To every coach…THANK YOU for what you do!!
