Write a memory or story about this coach, that impressed you. 

I was an assistant coach with Gary at the 2023 U18 flag nationals… off to an unfortunate 0 and 3 start to the tournament, Gary was positive, encouraging and coached this team back to a bronze medal performance, upsetting the top ranked team from BC, he led and coached our group to a Cinderella story finish.
