    Angie, I think I’ve become aware overtime, that the players I’ve had the opportunity to coach didn’t play for the same coach . . .maybe the same personality . . . but hopefully someone who evolved . . . I’ve been lucky that players are resilient and can live with a coach’s mistakes as long as they feel their coach cares about them and what he is doing. What is equally fun is to see how much former players continue to grow after college. I’m lucky in that many still stay in touch.
