Youth 1st in partnership with the Owatonna Huskies Bullpen Club, selected one of its youth baseball coaches from the summer season as the Real Winning Coach for 2014. Greg Gauthier was selected for the award, which was presented by Youth 1st Director Mark Arjes. Greg, who coached the U12A OHBC baseball team, consistently exhibited the values expressed in the Real Winning program, keeping his focus on the development and encouragement of his players.
“Greg embodies the quote from author John Shannon that is on the Real Winning Team plaque. “It’s not how many games you win, it’s how many kids you win.” We are proud to present this award to Greg, he gives as much to youth sports programs in Owatonna as anyone. It is well deserved.”, said Youth 1st Director Mark Arjes.
