Life School Athletics Highlights Four 'Coaches Of The Month'
Demonstrating LifeLeader qualities every day, Life School's Athletic Department selected its top four picks for March's Coaches Of The Month.
AMANDA ANDREWS | LIFE SCHOOL OAK CLIFF SECONDARY
Amanda Andrews is in her 9th year serving as Life School Oak Cliff Secondary's Licensed Athletic Trainer. She is a major reason LSOCS Athletics has been able to transition through COVID and get back to practices and games. Starting right away last March , Andrews made preparations to safely get student-athletes back, and to work at strength and conditioning in May. From daily screenings and temperature checks to assisting in writing the "COVID Risk Mitigation Plan" and "Return To Play Protocol," Andrews and the Sports Medicine team she created, have been the heartbeat behind LSOCS's athletic programs getting back on the field and participating. Thank you Coach Andrews for everything you have done over this last year to make it possible to compete!
MICHELLE MARTIN | LIFE MIDDLE SCHOOL WAXAHACHIE
Coach Michelle Martin is willing to step up and complete any task that needs to be completed. It would be hard to find anyone that pays more attention to detail than her. If she is given a task, it will be completed without question. Coach Martin is very goal-oriented; she is always wanting to find out how she can improve as a teacher and coach, and then does everything in her power to work on it. She is a valuable member of the LMSW coaching staff!
THOMAS RHODES AND ALEXIS LOPEZ | LIFE HIGH SCHOOL WAXAHACHIE
Thomas Rhodes and Alexis Lopez are the Life High School Waxahachie Athletic Trainers. Rhodes, LHSW's Head Athletic Trainer, has been with Life School for seven-years. Lopez, LHSW's Assistant Athletic Trainer and Sports Medicine Instructor, has been with Life School for two-years. From this past year, many challenges have come regarding athletic participation due to COVID. Both Athletic Trainers stepped up to the challenge that began this past summer with the Summer Strength and Conditioning program. Due to their leadership in following UIL, State and local protocols, LHSW's programs were able to remain operational. A lot of planning details on following COVID procedures allowed LHSW staff to move forward in preparing its student-athletes for the school year. Both Rhodes and Lopez exhibit the LifeLeader attribute of collaboration, working collectively with others to develop the best solutions for LHSW's athletic program. Thank you both for your passion and supporting Life School's athletic mission and building strong relationships with student-trainers. We are extremely grateful for their leadership!
