Coach McDades role model in life is his grandfather. My grandfather was a great man who worked hard his entire life. He was a spiritual role model for everyone around him. He believed in treating everyone with kindness and keeping a real perspective on the important things in life. He was like a father to me and he not only talked to me about how to conduct myself as a man but he showed me first hand in how he lived his life. I think it is important that we live our lives trying to be the best we can be every single day.
