Brooklyn, NY – When you meet Keith Stroud, you meet a friendly coach who is all about mentoring young athletes to better themselves.
Keith Stroud, offensive coordinator for Erasmus Hall HS took some of his skilled position players to a football camp at the University of Maryland this weekend, on Saturday, June 1, 2019. It was strong competition with 43 teams from all over. Erasmus made it to the second round of the finals after winning 5 games in a row.
Stroud takes a lot of pride when coaching and mentoring student athletes.
Stroud decided to take his love for the game and his craft and give back to student-athletes. If you are ready to work and want to advance Stroud is there to support and push, you to the finish line.
Stroud also known as Coach KJ has helped to get nine students recruited for Division I schools and plans to help more this coming season. He’s been coaching HS students for the last six years. Stroud started out coaching at Grand Street Campus in Bushwick, Brooklyn and then took the offensive coordinator position at Erasmus Hall HS in 2017.
The athletes look up to Coach KJ Stroud because he is very upfront with them about life, school, and sports. Stroud looks to his athletes to work hard and understand what it takes to win as a team but to also handle when they lose.
Coach Stroud stated, “The team that makes the most small wins, will be the team that wins.”
I spent many years on jobs that made a better life for my family. I realized though when life changed for me, I was in search for my purpose.
Hi, my name is Shani Hannah and I am a 44-year-old wife, mother and college student in pursuit of my master’s degree. Currently I am a new media journalism major. I love to write and express my thoughts and views on certain life situations pertaining to education and the community. Recently I had the opportunity to take on a project for a not for project organization named Safe Halls to write their blogs for them. I am excited to take on this project because it gives me the opportunity to share stories on another site.
As you start to evolve into your purpose things start lining up for you. My love for writing and my concern for today’s youth and education has pushed me into new opportunities. As I am starting on my early childhood journey as a teacher aide, I am delving more into the educational issues that plague our children today. Of course, I will talk about schools within my area and district as well as research outside of my community. I not only want to give my sentiments, but I want to also give direct information to keep parents informed, educators, and possibly any authoritative figures who are concerned with the learning curriculum for early childhood, PreK-12 and college students.
This blog is very personal to me because I get to open up about information that a lot of people just might not pay attention to. We have to stay more grounded and involved with what’s happening because education has drastically changed even since I was a little girl. The more you know the better off you are. My hope is that you will gain insight on what is going on in the educational realm along with the community.
Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts let’s talk…
