“A Coach gets Elevated or Terminated! Ain’t no in between. The hardest part about this whole thang is These young men, coaches, admin, trainers, equipment team, Photography team, Video team, housekeeping, Security, Johnny T’s , Fans, Alumni, Friends and whoever that were truly a blessing to our Program.
