I was scanning the news online today, and came across this article. Now, I'm not a sports person, so normally I don't read the sports stuff at all. But I know this guy from JFK High School! So, I reprinted part of the article here. I haven't had a chance to talk to Coach Smith at all, but I want to tell him - Congratulations Coach Smith! I hope you hit it out of the park! (Or whatever the appropriate sports metaphor is!)
