Property/Premises Accidents

“I honestly think I need to credit some of my success in coaching to all of you and your generosity and willingness to give with no expectation of any return.  That is something that has shaped my values today, and something I try to impress upon all of the youth I work with.  So please know that you haven’t impressed these values just on me, but on every young person I work with . . . I can never thank you enough . . . “
