It's not about the money

Coach Eric Hruschka has been running a long time and for the last 14 years, he's been teaching the boys at Jackson High School how to do it. The T'Wolves track and cross country coach is now the Christian Faith Center Coach who Makes a Difference.

Hruschka is a 1984 Lynnwood High School graduate. He was hooked on soccer, but credits his coaches for encouraging him to get into distance running.

By his senior year, Hruschka wanted to go into coaching, but says his counselors and teachers advised him to look for something that makes more money.

After college, he returned to Lynnwood to learn how to coach.

"I knew then it was not about the money but about doing the things we enjoy doing and being happy every day going to work," says Hruschka.
