Being selected into the PIL HOF is such a great honor. Playing sports growing up was more than just competing on a field. Coaches like, Larry Keck and Walt Looney instilled life lessons that helped shape me into the person I am today. They motivated me with positive words to show up on time ready to perform and give 100% of yourself to your team. They showed me how to be a leader, a good teammate, and show sportsmanship to the opponent win or lose.
