I would like to thank the many people who made our season fun and a success. First it was fun to see and hear from alumni and old friends who all had words of encouragement and congratulations.
I always appreciate the assistance received from my fellow coaches, Dennis Garner, Denny Wycinski, Craig Nyeholt, Gary Carson, and Eugene Yaklin. I was named coach of the year by your newspaper by these coaches and others have done much toward our teams success.
The words of encouragement and the assistance from Dan Walker, Dick McEwen, Kathy Ullom, Stephanie Revoldt helped to make my job a lot easier.
Shooting Star Photography thank you from the entire team for the wonderful gifts you gave the team. Michelle Breen and Charlie Brown's for the milkshakes and our anonymous donor who took the team to Lucky's for a team dinner.
Randy Crowel and Quini's Restaurant, in Dryden, who organized a team breakfast before the district tournament. This was a joint breakfast with the Dryden Girl's Basketball team as well. I hope this is the start of a new tradition.
Thank you to the parents for the team dinners you put together every thursday. Your support at games was greatly appreciated. The girls know when you are there cheering them on.
A special thank you to my family for your support especially my wife, Charlotte, who has kept my scorebook and stood behind me all the seasons I have coached.
To the players, I thank you for all your effort and dedication you have put in to this season. You have made it something special. Something your families, your school and the entire town can be proud of.
As you each now go your own way I hope you will carry a fond memory of our time together. Seniors I wish you continued success in the future and hope you will come visit me in the future.
