Coach Lain has helped me grow not only as a tumbler, but as a person as well. He’s been there for me through the fun times, the happy times, and the hard times. He’s taught me to step out of my comfort zone and try new things and to, for a few seconds, lose the fear I have because that’s what holds me back more than anything. He’s not only been a mentor, but a friend at the times I’ve needed him. He’s truly an amazing coach and person altogether, and someone I can talk to about anything, knowing that he truly cares. I’m honored with the opportunity to get to know him and get coached by him, and am truly blessed he’s such a big part of my life.
