What was your relationship to Kevin?
I was Kevin's Asstistant Coach at Central Catholic for 6 yrs. I learned more about basketball in those 6 yrs. then I did in my entire life. Kevin was my best friend. He was the one who stayed in constant contact with me when we moved to Atlanta. I really needed those phone calls, because the move was very difficult at first.
Do you have a favorite memory of Kevin?
Celebrating winning our 1st regional championship at our house after the game. He was sitting on our couch holding the trophy. As we know he went on to win many trophies and much bigger trophies but that first one was special and I will never forget that night.
What do you think made Kevin special or unique?
He could get the most out of his kids. They would reach goals that they maybe didn’t believe they were capable of. Also he was never going to be outworked. He didn’t win every game, but you didn’t beat him because you outworked him.
What do you want people to know about Glioblastoma and/or the efforts of the KBSTRONG - Fighting the Fight foundation?
First of all, that it is an Awful disease. But that KB Strong will make a difference. Jodi has the same work ethic about KB Strong that Kevin had about basketball and with her leadership KB Strong will make a difference.
If you were face to face with Kevin today, what would you tell him?
First I would tell him how much I miss him and love him. I would tell him how much I miss his humorous wit. I miss all the one liners that would always make me laugh. He had a line for every situation. I would also tell him that after hearing from many of his players, that the impact he had on there lives changed them forever. He will live on thru their lives and that his players will impact the world,all because of what they learned from their Coach.
