In what way is coaching football similar to being in the military?

What can you learn from the mitzvot of Judaism that you also learn from being a soldier?

Avi Eastman grew up disillusioned with organized religion. After college, he joined the US military and discovered that he very much enjoyed being a soldier.

Today the father of seven boys, Avi is a Torah-observant Jew living in Israel. He coaches high school and adult football teams in addition to teaching guitar.

Tune in to meet a man who is still head-over-heels in love with his wife, both his countries, and his hobbies.
