Several years ago, Mike Wing announced his retirement. But not from his profession as a telecommunications business owner; he announced his retirement from 30 years of coaching youth sports. Wing, who moved to the valley 11 years ago from Arvada, had coached his son, daughter, nieces, and nephews in football, soccer and baseball.

The single father, 51, owns his own business, MLW Enterprises Inc., and when his kids got into high school he thought his coaching days were over.

“I need to think about it,” became his mantra. He did, and now he is into his second week as the Head Coach of the Rye High School girls soccer team. Joined by JV Coach Laura Seller and conditioning coach Karon Hopkins, Wing has a squad of 25 that Wing describes as having a lot of talent and speed.
