    My kids played against him. At first I didn’t know how to take him because he will play head games with his opponent and the umps. But, once I met him, I became a big fan. Really good guy who just played to win. Hardest working high school coach I ever came across. Really hate to see him retire. He is a legend for sure.

    He’s been telling me he was retiring for 10 years. I never believed him. He’s not ready but he’s ready.

    Nakia should take over
    Them that don't know him won't like him, and them that do sometimes won't know how to take him

    He ain't wrong, he's just different, and his pride won't let him do things to make you think he's right

    They don't put Championship rings on smooth hands
