What a great man! He was like no other. It was a pleasure to be counted as one of his athletes. He demanded dedication and excellence, and in that respect he taught future coaches more than any book or survey course ever could. I only hope that one day, I could reach one student the way he has reached 100's. We will all miss you Coach. God Bless you in your next endeavor. Our sympathies to the family. I just hope you know what a great man your dad was. LuCinda (Lucy Knoepfle) Haak 1979

One of the most memorable people of JC. Watch out upstairs . . . you're getting a rowdy one! My thoughts go to his family.
