“The handshake that changed my life 🤝
I was 15yrs old and just moved to Bethlehem, PA and just started attending Freedom High School.
Within a month I’d already been arrested as well as suspended for fighting. I had an incident with a teacher/football coach named Jodi Cwik in the teachers lounge where we almost came to blows.
I acted like a real asshole to him, so the next day I found him so I could apologize eye to eye and face to face.
When he wouldn’t let my hand go, I thought he was gonna deck the shit outta of me but instead he said something to me that would forget change the course of life.
Thank you all for tuning in and for all your amazing feedback and comments.
Rest In Peace, coach Cwik and thank you for believing in that 15yr old punk kid”
