coach urbina.

disclaimer: this is going to be a total brag post about my husband.

my husband evan is an amazing tennis player. uh-may-zing! evan received a full ride tennis scholarship to brigham young university.  while on the team, he played number one singles and doubles consistently, and was the captain his senior year.  the byu cougars accomplished incredible things while he was on the team.

one of evan's greatest traits as a teammate and captain was his amazing ability to encourage.  he loved taking on the challenge of leading by example, rallying the team to a come from behind win, and inspiring the guys to finish out tough matches.  with such an amazing ability to lead and encourage it's no surprise that he wants to be a coach.

this spring, evan became the head coach of the orem high boys tennis team {not bad considering he was still a college student when he got the job}.  all of the guys loved having him as a coach, and it was so amazing to see him thrive in that role.  the team had a great season, and the boys learned a ton from evan!

although he loved coaching the high school team, his real passion in division I tennis.  we are currently on the job hunt ready to uproot and go wherever so he can start his dream job.  we have no idea what the near future holds for us, but i know with certainty that whatever team gets my evan as their coach will succeed.  I am so thankful for my passionate coach, my devoted husband, and my best friend.

love you evan darling! xoxo.
