Talent and Chemistry

Coming Full Circle

by Shelly Morris I am an NCAA Division I head coach who is lucky enough to coach at my alma mater. It is an opportunity that is only afforded to a few. A true full circle of life, that my naïve 18-year-old self would have never seen coming.  I grew up in western Massachusetts, playing…
