Commentary:

My high school sports were greatly inspired by a coaching staff of father figures and good men that brought the best out in so many of us. I lived with my high school baseball coach my last two years at Madison. Roger Clark and his family helped me mature, study, and grow, preparing me for college and life, to this day like family. My time at Madison was truly a blessing and something I will always cherish and why I have been associated with our athletic alumni since.
