Getting to know Coach Beer:
Why did you get into coaching?
"My main inspiration for coaching is seeing the growth that occurs in athletes from a personal, social, academic and athletic standpoint. I believe my main responsibility is to help guide athletes to improve in those areas. Cross-country and track & field gives every single athlete the opportunity to improve and develop. I love being apart of that growth and development."
