Lenny Orbovich – Carrick High School
Carrick High School head wrestling and assistant football coach Lenny Orbovich sees the importance of educating his athletes about respecting women through Coaching Boys Into Men (CBIM). Years of character-building coaching with his team has yielded positive results: “I hear the boys talking about our discussions outside of practice, and that’s how I know CBIM is making a difference.”
CBIM provides coaches and athletes the opportunity to talk about healthy relationships, social media, and how to be a positive bystander in sports and in school. “As a coach, I see my players as real people. I want them to achieve success on the field and on the mat, but I also want to see them achieve success in life.”
Lenny is optimistic about the long-lasting positive effects that CBIM can have on his male athletes, and he encourages other coaches to make the leap and commit to implementing CBIM.
