The will for humans to succeed is a remarkable thing. They are so strong to begin with and even stronger when tested. Life is in constant change so people are doomed to encounter challenges, but what you do when you are challenged is important. Do you surrender to your challenge or do you keep your head high and battle it out? Some of our very own at Brashier teachers have been faced with challenges, for example History Teacher Coach McAnelly.

“I left college because I signed as a free agent for the Washington Redskins, then I went to training and got hurt,” says McAnelly.

His athletic career came to a halt, one of many challenges he encountered through his life, but he didn’t surrender. He collected himself and thought about his new future that didn’t involve football.

“I had the opportunity to go back to school, and I finished with 2 majors at Florida. Also I graduated with highest honors,” says McAnelly.

Not only did Coach McAnelly take on the daunting task of going back to school he graduated with the title of highest honors. His determination to be successful was incontestable and no matter the card was dealt, McAnelly came out on top.   

“I’ve been coaching football ever since I couldn’t play. I coached for about 40 years,” says McAnelly.

In addition to redirecting his future, McAnelly was also able to include football into his new lifestyle. He didn’t let his injury get in the way of his passion. That being said,he knew he couldn’t play so he did the next best thing, coach kids that could.

“Never take anything for granted, never,” says McAnelly.
