Abby Wambach

  • U.S. Women’s National Team
  • World’s all-time leader in international goals scored

Jerry Smith had a massive impact on my success as a professional athlete, but he also developed my 'off the field' skills in teaching me about life and confidence. He told me no one can do the work for you. And he was right. I still use that mentality in everything I do. Looking back, he may have had THE most impact on my career and life.

Randy Winn

  • 13-year veteran of Major League Baseball
  • Coaching for Life Academy Advisory Board Member
  • Santa Clara University graduate

There are so many life lesson to be learned by playing sports. Lessons like the benefits of hard work, discipline, sportsmanship, effort and teamwork. These things can be lost if too big an emphasis is put on winning at a young age.

Aly Wagner

  • Two time Olympic Gold Medalist (2004, 2008)
  • Fox Sports Soccer Analyst

Jerry was the greatest coach I've played for. Beyond soccer, he impacted my life by demanding the best from me as a person. How to lead, how to be in tune with my teammates and loved ones, how to take ownership and how to live in the moment are all lessons I took away from Jerry.

Jay Leupp
