Hard Work Equals a Victory for the Underdog!

I recently had the opportunity to experience a wonderful tournament run by the Platteville Hillmen volleyball team, of which my daughter is a member. We were able to get to the WIAA state finals at the Resch Center in Green Bay, and this certainly was a fond memory that will remain with my family.

As is likely the case with others of you, I have been around sports all my life, either as a player, coach, and a parent. So much hard work, pain, and tears go into a tournament run. When involved with these events, there was many times where I just sat back in my seat, having no idea of what the outcome of a particular game would be. When the contest was over, there was almost more of a sense of relief in lieu of exaltation.

I would like to start by acknowledging some people who are here today. I know that all of you think you have the best staff, but in fact, I have the best staff, who are all here today! Thank you for coming, and thank you for the fact that you keep coming back to work each day. My staff puts up with a lot of my ideas and they still walk back through the door the next day, and I really appreciate that! My children are here, which means a lot to me. Thank you for your support. And lastly, my wife Dee is here. Thank you, Dee, for all your years of support. You are the one who worked while I was in school, you are the one who told me I was doing fine when I had moments of doubt, and you are the one who fills my better half. Thank you, and I love you.
