Karl as a Champion of Community
As a coach and member of the sports industry, Karl feels a strong sense of obligation to give back. This feeling started with his first coaching experience, as a volunteer with the Special Olympics. Special Olympics athletes taught Karl to be humble and intentional with his actions.
This humility and intentionality transferred into Karl’s first head coaching job at a middle school that served families from all areas of the socio-economic spectrum. Karl didn’t want financial hardship to prevent children from participating in sports. In order to provide all athletes with the opportunity to participate, Karl raised funds to buy shoes for the kids in the free lunch program.
Karl is now a volunteer coach for youth sports and continues to dedicate his time to serving. Karl enjoys sharing the knowledge and experience he has gained from the sport with kids in the community.
