2020 Senior Athlete Recognition to Ryan Haas

Hello fellow Golfing students and parents of PWHS!

I would like to give a Shout-Out to our one and ONLY Senior golfer, Ryan Haas!

The 2020 Golf season would have been special to Ryan since he would have been the Leader of our squad and would have assumed the leadership role for the rest of our underclassmen on the team.  His enthusiasm was apparent to me as soon as the discussion for the season had started.  Ryan even asked me what his role would be, knowing he was the only Senior.  I have no doubt in my mind that he would have been a positive influence on the rest of his team.

Ryan joined the Varsity squad mid-season last year.  I think the challenge and pressure of playing on Varsity was a little overwhelming to Ryan at first.  After a few meets, his attitude before each round was a little 'Ho-Hum' without much enthusiastic energy.  Being the positive coach and 'glass half full' person I am, I told Ryan that I felt he was currently more like "Eeyore" from Winne the Pooh and he should strive to be more like "Tigger."  He didn't want to believe he could do it, but during that round of golf, he was inspired and ended up shooting one of the Best Rounds of his Life!!!  I told him, his nickname will now be Tigger, because he did change his attitude from 'Ho-Hum' to one of being 'POSITIVE' and the results proved it.

Ryan, even though our 2020 Golf season did not happen, my wish is that you'll take that Tigger mindset with you in your future life and in everything you set out to accomplish!!

Cheers - Coach Rory!
