   There is a person in my life who I admire greatly, he is a strong influence for me, his name is Barry Francis and he is my father.

   My dad coaches our school hockey team. He tells me to do my best, he encourages our team. Our team has had three tournament wins due to my dad's coaching skills.

  My dad has had several jobs. He worked at the band office. He was a fireman and had his own pizza business. Right now, he is a fisherman, he fishes from 6:00a.m.to 5:30p.m. After a long day he still has time to ask about our day.
