Personal Quote:

When I first started coaching, my state dictated to me where I had to go, when I played and who I played. I hold no grudges and I don't have a chip on my shoulder. You can't unring a bell. I played as long as I could play, whenever I could play and as hard as I could play. How else can you judge me, except for what I accomplish?
