No one beats Coach Murphy! He is positive, understands the game isn’t just about physical ability but mental as well. He takes the time to explain the reason behind a drill and what the ultimate end result should be. His understanding of softball is leaps and bounds above most and Bri looks forward to her time with him each week. She’s progressed so much and it’s all thanks to him.
