I played for coach Rip for two years and there was only one thing he said I disagree with.
“I was nobody special,” he said of himself.
Coach was a role model for me as a young man, during a time when it wasnt always easy to do the right thing. Although he was tough on me at times, his lessons have stuck with me into my adult life. He was someone special to me and I am proud to have played for him. The next man up has some big shoes to fill. Good luck on the next chapter coach.
