Coach Nelson is so clutch in the playoffs. He knows how to get a team ready to travel and win tough games.

Great game DH. Continue to dominate.

I have always admired how Coach Nelson conducts himself with his teams though I have never had the privilege of having had a son play for him. I get to take an objective look as I watch him coach my nephew as well as several others who I had the good fortune to "coach" in youth football and I agree with you, he does do a very nice job. But, I would say, especially after this win, the way they won, that he does an incredible job developing the confidence of these young men, he and Coach Frankie, through having confidence and trust in them.
I won't go into detail, but my nephew's explanation of the decision to go for the 2 point conversion, make it or not, says volumes for the belief these coaches have in their players. I'll leave it at that, as I applaud the coaching style, effort and principles right along side you.

Old Hapa--
I'm guessing it was a similar process when we went for it on fourth down and got it late in a game... If I said the exact words, this comment wouldnt get posted but it sounds like a very similar situation.
