Lol
Sue is at St Martin. My brother-in-law is the AD at Country Day. He hired Tommy. Tommy's toughest job will be dealing with the parents of the players.

I wrote a profile of Matthews for the Hullabaloo in 1983, he was a mature, decent guy as a senior, good player. Best of luck with those private school parents.

Tommy was raised right. He was a very good HS basketball player and an excellent baseball player. Yet he was always humble and kind to everyone.

If he does he'll be doing what he can to steer them to us along w/former Greenie and JV coach there, Sam Dozier. Plus we know their families can afford the tuition. :mrgreen:

Their best attributes are that they are the ultimate competitors,” Juan Ibieta said. “It brings them together because they want to win so badly. That’s what makes them good.”

Athleticism runs in the family. Juan played baseball at Tulane. Julie played volleyball at LSU. Jenna’s younger brothers, Jake and Justin, are athletes, too.”

I had the pleasure (?) of playing against Bill in both Basketball and baseball in 1965, my first year at East Jeff...for those who saw the movie "passing glory" East Jeff played Jesuit in the top 20 tournament in Shreveport in the state championship tournament...a few months later, they had the unofficial state championship game against St Aug and Harold Sylvester.. Jesuit had one hell of a team, I can only imagine how good St Aug was.....

What a great read. I never met or experienced Coach Fitz, but I did have a few coaches and professors that had the same sort of impact on my life. We all need those people, in addition to our parents, to help us grow. Thanks for sharing this .

That was a great read.
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

Funny story about that game where Maravich scored 66. Tulane won. Hap Glaudi was the sports anchor on wwl-tv. He went on and on about Maravich and LSU. My mother counted how many times he mentioned Maravich and LSU . It was like 33-1 in LSU's favor. She wrote him a letter about it and reminded him that Tulane won. He read it on the air and apologized.
