“Through sports, I learned that you can have high hopes, but if you don’t work for them, they mean nothing.”

Is there a teacher or coach who has made a big impact on you?

Coach George Long was my football, basketball, and baseball coach. He was also my history teacher. Coach has had the biggest impact on me. He has become a father figure to many athletes, especially the students of color.
