My whole life I wanted to coach, I wanted to be someone’s role model the way my coaches and mentors were to me. Through college I found all the best ways I could be a quality coach. But no one, no one, no one ever prepared me to lose a player, especially one of the best humans I had the privilege to know.

Drew Ceppetelli was the backbone in all areas of life, she lit up every room, every person she touched became a better person for knowing her. I still see her looking at me and saying “coach meg I’m just happy to be here and this is awesome” with one of the best smiles… don’t ever take someone’s “see you later” for granted..  Always love you and grateful I got to know you.
