Little Boy Sobs Reading Letter To His Favorite Football Coach

Little Boy Sobs Reading Letter To His Favorite Football Coach

One young man became emotional as he thanked his youth football coach for his help and guidance over the past season.

Coaches, much like teachers, can and do have a massive impact on society. Those men and women who assume coaching duties interact with young people on a regular or semi-regular basis. Their words, actions and lessons can affect a young man or woman’s life far beyond the field or court.

A video posted on TikTok is a perfect example of how much a coach can come to mean to their players. The short, 43-second clip starts with the coach kneeling on the ground as he opens a gift from one of his players.

After reaching down into the Avengers-themed bag, the coach pulls out a cup with a touching and very true message emblazoned across the container.

“A good coach can change a game, but a great coach can change a life,” the man says as he reads off the cup.

But that is not the only gift the coach receives, one young man wanted to read a letter he’d written to his football coach. However, he is overcome with emotion and begins crying before its conclusion.

“Dear Coach Richard, you have been the greatest coach of my life,” the young man reads. “I love you, Richard. I want you to show me your (unintelligible). You helped me love football again. Thank you for being my favorite coach.”

As the child concludes his heartfelt note, he is overcome with emotion. The coach envelops the young man in a warm and loving embrace. 

Coaching is, or should be, about more than wins, losses and strategy. They are teachers who can use their game to impart lifelong lessons and messages to their players. Sadly, most people in coaching forget this area of coaching, getting too caught up in winning and losing.

This video is an excellent reminder of the monumental impact coaches can have on young people.
