Dear Coach Taylor:
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for this weekend. It has been an amazing experience to see these boys transform in just three days. Your speeches were inspirational and I believe well received by the boys and parents alike. It's great to have someone teach these boys the art of humility, teamwork and the importance of studying and working hard. I write this not just because I think you will leave a lasting impact on my son (a freshman) but because you will leave an impact on me. When you spoke last night of Michael Jordan's poster and the quote regarding how many failures he had in order to achieve success, I immediately ordered two posters. One for my sons house where he lives with his dad and one for my own. I think the quote speaks volumes regarding fear and challenges and the ability to succeed only after trying. I think it applies outside of the basketball of sporting arena and in very thing we do in life. So I guess this is my long winded way of saying simply "thank you" for being real. The best to you.
