  • 31. Feb. 8, 2013 — MOUNTAINEER 33Mountaineer Athlete of the Week Tracy McDaniel Youth basketball coach What do you like best about coaching youth sports? The best thing about coaching youth sports is watching the fun the kids have. At this point, the kids may not have the best skills they will (ever) have, but it’s great to see them out having fun and learning the skills involved in the game. What is your best personal sports moment? I was playing basketball for my unit at my first duty station, and in the first game I played for them, I was able to hit a game-winning shot. I was at the free-throw line; I went for jump shot and I made it. We were tied at the time so there wasn’t too much pressure. If I missed the shot, we would go to overtime. What would you consider your best professional sports moment? I grew up in Indiana as a big Michael Jordan fan and my favorite moment is when he made that shot over Craig Ehlo of the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the playoff series (in 1989). If you could change anything in sports what would it be? I would like to see the NBA go to a best-of-five series until they get to the conference and NBA Finals. I think it would make the playoffs more competitive in the earlier rounds with teams knowing they don’t have as many chances to win. If you could meet any athlete who would it be? I would love to be able to spend some time with Michael Jordan. Growing up I met (his Chicago Bulls teammates) Horace Grant and Scottie Pippen, but Michael is the one person I would love to talk with to get some tips on the game of basketball. People who don’t know me would be surprised to know ... I take a lot of pride in being a youth basketball coach. I like to make sure that the kids don’t feel pressure to play and know how much fun the game is. The kids like to win, but (winning is) not the biggest thing in the world ... to them (it’s) having fun (playing the game). Photo by Walt Johnson Now accepting appointments in our new location.
