After 18 years of paperwork, reports, checking equipment, making sure she had a team. Cindy Spitz is hanging up the whistle.  

“She’s been a part of this program for many years and (had) a big impact (on) our team. She will truly be missed by Big Bad Blue,” varsity soccer forward Love’ Tovar said.

Coaches want to leave on a good note and be remembered.

“The team wants to send off Coach Spitz winning a district championship and going further in the state playoffs,” varsity head coach Christopher Lopez said.

Coaches often learn from each other’s experiences and work to get better. 

“Coach Spitz taught me to be an understanding coach, that coaching girls soccer is different from boys. I had to look at her expertise — that is what coaches take for granted,” Lopez said.

Spitz has worked to have positive influence.

“I hope I have left an everlasting impression on my players,” Spitz said. “I hope that I made a positive impact on the hearts and minds of all players that have played at DVHS.”

Coaches don’t leave impressions on players alone, they leave them on coaches as well.

“I’ve known Spitz for 30 years. One thing I’ll miss about her is her taking care of the paperwork and reports. As a coach, you take that for granted,” Lopez said. “I will also miss the snacks.”

Accomplishments mean a lot especially when it is a coaches final season and want to leave something special behind.

“The seniors have set many goals which they hope to achieve. I hope to help guide them to reach these goals,” Spitz said.

When a person has been coaching for as long as Spitz has, letting go may be difficult.

“Soccer has been a part of my life since my children were four years old. I have been coaching soccer for the past 28 years,” Spitz said. “I have mixed feelings but I must move on with my life, and coaching soccer will end in 2018.”

In that long, careers accomplishments add up.

“I started out as the J.V. coach, and won eight district championships- when YISD allowed an assistant coach to be added I moved up to varsity – I have been coaching at DV for the past 18 years,” Spitz said.
