I had tears in my eyes as I watched this. 30 years ago I headed to college the summer before my freshman year a lowly non scholarship walk-on. For the next two months I worked my butt off in the weight room, in pick-up games, in the Georgetown Summer League, and at the gym late at night. At the end of summer my coach sat me down and told me he was going to scholarship me for the next 5 years. As a shy 18 year old I was totally incapable of expressing my gratitude to my coach, John Kuester. Even now I find it hard to adequately express how grateful I am.
One of the ways I have chosen to give back and show my appreciation is to write The Blue Team. The response has been outstanding. I am grateful and humble the Lord decided to use me and my failings to make this story, this message so effective.
