Jackson Seedott, 20, has been a volunteer coach for a Special Olympics floor hockey team, the Mount Pleasant Blue Jays, for two years. He also attends Central Michigan University as a full time student double majoring in Special Education and English. Seedott gained an interest in working with individuals with special needs at an early point in his life through his mother who is a special education teacher.
Since working with the Blue Jays, Jackson has been able to see a lot of potential in each and every athlete. He strives to help them realize everything they are capable of and uses a balanced coaching style of pushing the individuals while also supporting them. This video includes footage from a practice held on November 16, 2012 at Mary Mcguire Elementary school. The team was focused on preparing for a state tournament the following day.
UPDATE: The Blue Jays won their state competition on November 17th in Lansing, MI.
