Merry Christmas SDSSAA

I worked with great colleagues, young people and parents. I miss what you do and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with you.Coaches are one of the groups that can reach students like no other. It is people like you who can turn a young person life around. I appreciate the hours you dedicate to our athletic program both on and off the court, because we all know the game is only a part of your commitment. I want you to know that your administrators are aware of your efforts. It is people like you who are instrumental in forming the culture of a school.
