There is a special bond that develops between a coach and player....for some a lasting impression. This is how Trent Kirchner explains his relationship with Brad Holinka, Fulda coach and educator. “Brad built a strong foundation to aid students to succeed both in the game of football and life,” he explained.

Kirchner, who serves as the pro personnel director for the Seattle Seahawks, commented,

“We never wanted to disappoint him.” And disappoint he has not.

Shortly after the Seahawks won the NFC Championship, Holinka texted a ‘Congrats’ to Kirchner. Within minutes following the text, he was on the receiving end of a call from Kirchner asking Holinka to join him at the Superbowl.  Initially Holinka declined stating Kirchner had more important people to invite other than himself. Kirchner kept on insisting. Finally Holinka said he’d think about it. After communication with his wife and son, Holinka texted Kirchner the following day saying, ‘I’m in.’. “I wanted him there,” said Kirchner, “but doubted he would actually accept the invitation and was elated when Brad said he would come.”               According to Holinka, he hadn’t actually been on a plane, much less leave the area, since his honeymoon in 1990.
