The race isn't swum, until it is swum.
That's Coach Fober for being a role model and mentor for the young Spartans under your guidance. As one parent wrote in her thank you note:
I don't think that it is just chance that our boys chose the career paths they did. They learned from you how important a coach can be in the life of a teenage boy. I am so glad that you were such a strong role model for them, never placing winning over the right choice.And when you work hard and make the right choices over time, success will eventually follow.
