Coach Easton has been coaching for over 40 years, predominantly at the middle school level.
Since I've come to SMA (25 years ago), I've coached high school softball, and middle school basketball (girls and boys - all 25 years), soccer (girls and boys), field hockey, lacrosse (boys), and volleyball. I've been blessed to have some amazing teams through the years, and I remain grateful for the opportunity to help young people grow as athletes and as and as citizens of the community.
I see my role as teaching the game first, so that my players can see why they are doing what I'm asking them to do. I want to do all I can to help each player improve - not only their skills, but their understanding of the nuances of the game, as well.
One of my greatest joys is seeing a player that I've coached in middle school make a varsity team as a freshman.
As for hobbies, I love golf (I'm hopeless but optimistic), skiing (the 2 scariest words in skiing are: "follow me dad), and taking my 2 labs for our daily jog (I have to work off the donuts somehow).
