NOTE FROM COACH K
May 29, 2014Hallsville High School
To players, parents, coaching staff, administration, teachers, staff, former players, parents of former players, coaching friends, and just plain old friends of mine.....
Not enough ways to thank all the people who contributed to a great season and a fantastic run at the playoffs. It is disappointing to see it end; I'm disappointed FOR my boys and my boys' parents, but I'm not disappointed IN my players. They stood with character, fought with heart and determination, and genuinely cared about each other. I truly couldn't ask for more...............my coaching goals have been satisfied.
To my eight seniors..........you have met many challenges and excepted responsibility for conquering what you were able; your growth in character still amazes me, even though it is what I set out to help you achieve.
To the parents of those eight seniors.........thanks for your support and trust. I know you may not have always agreed with every decision, but I felt your faith in the end.
To my coaching staff.......Mike and Ryan.........it is more than just a little nice having good people by my side listening and speaking out. We all will miss you, Coach Bennett!
To Coach Blakemore and administration.........thanks for all the detail and background work. And of course, thanks for your trust and support in the Indians baseball program.
And then to long and short time staffers, teachers, former Indian ballers, coaching buddies, and just good friends...............I may not have responded to every note sent my way but thanks for your texts, emails, voicemails, and personal visits that offer luck and congrats throughout the season. Your positive offerings helped me stay upbeat, and it helped me remember I have lots of good people with and by me......and why I keep doing what I’m doing.
now, for a little R & R.............then it's get ready for year 40!
