Aaron Smetanka – Greensburg Central Catholic
Head football coach, Aaron Smetanka, at Greensburg Central Catholic High School has been working on and off the field to teach the boys on his team about respect. Coaching Boys Into Men allowed his players to recognize when aggression crosses the line and also discuss how to be respectful toward women on social media.
According to Aaron, “I think this opportunity is all about molding them and building them up for the future, and the time to do it is now.”
Many of the boys are talking about what they’ve learned not just when they’re in the room together, but in the days and weeks after.
Aaron believes that every coach should implement CBIM, and he is helping to spread its mission to other coaches on his own time. He says, “start now, whether in the sports season or not. Find the time to do it, just 15 or 20 minutes. It’s so self-explanatory.”
