For the love of basketball and each other

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

From Cuero Little Dribblers through Lady Gobbler varsity basketball, coach Amy Crain and her daughter, Katie, have built a special bond which has only grown through their mutual love for basketball. As Katie’s senior year draws to a close, it seemed appropriate to reflect on the mother/daughter and coach/player relationship.

“It’s pretty special, and it’s been a special time for us,” Amy said.

Amy started coaching for Cuero ISD as the seventh grade girls coach four years ago when Katie was in eighth grade, but they’re player/coach journey started well before that. Amy started as a parent coach for Katie in Little League, soccer and Little Dribblers.

“When I first started, I didn’t know what to expect from school sports, because I hadn’t done it before,” Amy said. “As far as coaching her, I don’t know that I really changed anything from how I coached her in Little League and Little Dribblers.”
