Story Subtitle or summary
Pete Villhauer, more commonly known as “Coach Pete”, has many stories that he could tell, but his favorite is one where his team was down by 4 goals with 4 minutes to go. This was his third year into coaching, so he was relatively new to these situations. He kept preaching to his team that they could do it, they only needed one goal every minute, which was very doable. His team rallied, and with 12 seconds left on the clock, they tied up the game. They went back to midfield and lined up for the face off, and Coach Pete’s team had been losing most of them. But this time, they won the face off, and the middie drove down the field, drew an attackmen’s defender towards him, and passed towards the attackmen. 4 seconds left, the attackmen shoots and buries it past the goalie for the win.
How he got into Coaching
Story Subtitle or summary
When asked about how he got into coaching, Coach Pete said that he played sports growing up and loved it, so he knew that coaching was something he was passionate about and wanted to do. Being from upstate New York, lacrosse was in his blood. He played everything from football to basketball to lacrosse. This is where he learned to be a great teammate and learned the ins and outs of the game he coaches today. He also says the most interesting part of coaching is watching the players grow up from the start of the season to the end. “Teaching players the game and showing them the rights and wrongs of how to play are what I love most about coaching.” He became interested in coaching because his daughters play lacrosse, and they needed a coach for one of their teams and he volunteered and fell in love with it. He then became the director of CYLA, the Cherokee Youth Lacrosse Association. He still coaches today, and he is currently coaching his son’s team this spring.
For Coach Pete, coaching is his free time. He spends his day at his regular job, comes home and gets ready for what he loves, which is coaching. He spends time with his own kids as well as others, which is very important to him. Many people consider coaching to be a chore and a waste of time, but not to Coach Pete. To him, coaching is everything.
