    I meant to post this last night but just couldn't type it.
    If you saw the movie "Glory Road", it was about our local coach at UTEP, Texas Western then. He passed away yesterday at 4:30pm approximately. He was a wonderful man, I was lucky enough to know him and have his influence during some very important times in my life. There are links all over the Internet announcing his death, I'd ask you to read some of them and remember a wonderful man.

    He broke down barrier in this area for all races, not just Black, but Hispanic, Anglo, everyone. He didn't care about what your skin looked like, he cared about you and how you played and your future. If only we had more like him.
