Being a father is one of the greatest rewards a man can experience.
“It is the greatest thing I have ever been able to do,” Choctaw County football coach Adam Dillinger said. “It is the biggest responsibility I have ever had and the greatest rewards I have ever had come from that.”
When a man makes that transition into being a father, it is no secret that for the most part they are changed. The transformation that takes place can oftentimes be seen personally, mentally and physically.
For those men who wear the title of both father and coach, the change that takes place is one that teaches “patience,” “understanding” and compassion when it comes to how they handle both roles.
