AN OFFENSIVE LINE COMMUNITY
Kyle Warr, Whitworth
To this day I have never had a coach who was able to relate to his players more than Coach Haagenson. The techniques and footwork I was taught were the best that I've seen. Haag is one of my biggest mentors and influences, from the two years he was my coach. The tone he sets for the offensive line is one of the best. He pushed me past my limits, which helped me become a better offensive linemen. After 8 years of knowing Haag, I've listened to his aspects on coaching and learned many key points and tips to what works for giving offensive lineman advantages over defenses. In high school I was voted first team all league and honorable mention all state and neither of these accomplishments would have happened if it wasn't for coach Haag. When this guy speaks football, you shut up and listen. This man will die on the grid iron with the amount of love and passion he has for this great game we call football.

Old school, blue collar coaches are a dying breed, but Coach Haagenson has epitomized just that. He is a coach that will give everything he has to his players, on and off the field. His work ethic and the lessons he has taught are attributes I have incorporated at the division one college level and now in my career.

Coach Haagenson laid the foundation for me to continue to play football at the Division 1 level. His deliberate focus on proper technique, including correct foot and hand placement, led to success on the football field and taught me to pay attention to the small details. Coach Haagenson also taught me the importance of studying film and being able to critique myself and my game. The skills I learned on the football field with Coach Haag translated to success both on and off the field.

Coach Haagenson was the perfect example of how a coach should be. If mistakes were made he made sure they were corrected. He knew the ins and outs of how offensive line should be played. He also knew how to motivate people. He helped me find a love for the game I thought I never had. I will forever be thankful for being able to play for Coach Haag.
