THAT WAS A CHEAP SHOT SOMEONE TOOK AT THE NEW COACH AT
ST. RITA, TO THINK THAT SINCE HE WAS FROM NEW YORK, THAT
HIS MISSION WHEN HE WAS AT DEPAUL WAS TO BRING IN PLAYER'S
FROM NEW YORK IS A CRAZY IDEA, THE LAST JOB THE COACH HAD
WAS RICHMOND UNIVERSITY WITH THE HEAD COACH FROM DEPAUL!
ANYWAY WELCOME TO THE CATHOLIC LEAGUE, AND SINCE YOU
COACHED AT A CATHOLIC SCHOOL IN NEW YORK, YOU WILL BRING
GREAT COACHING TO A VERY WELL RESPECTED LEAGUE!
THE ESPN CLIP ON CLUB BASKETBALL IS A GOOD ONE, AND MIKE
OLIVER WAS GREAT ON THE CLIP, GLAD HE GAVE A SHOUT-OUT
TO D. ROSE, I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD TAKE A DEEP BREATH
ESPECIALLY THE PLAYER'S, I KNOW YOU ARE TRAVELING ALL
OVER THE COUNTRY, AND YOU FEEL LIKE A ROCK STAR, BUT
I ASK YOU A SIMPLE QUESTION, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO
WHEN THE BALL STOPS BOUNCING, I BEG ALL OF YOU, PLEASE
TRY TO BE A BETTER STUDENT WHEN YOU ARE IN THE CLASSROOM,
TAKE SOME BUSINESS CLASSES IN HIGH SCHOOL, LEARN TO BE
RESPECTFUL IN HIGH SCHOOL, YOUR ATTITUDE WILL DETERMINE
YOUR ALTITUDE, EVERYONE ISN'T GOING TO GO PRO, I DON'T
HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOU MAKING AN ATTEMPT, BUT I DO HAVE
A PROBLEM WHEN A HIGH PROFILE PLAYER, STILL BELIEVES IN
THE DUMB JOCK SYNDROME, PLEASE TRY TO FOCUS IN THE
CLASSROOM, LEARN TO BE POLITE, NEVER FORGET THE GREAT
PLAYER'S OF THE PAST, AND MOST OF ALL, NEVER I MEAN NEVER
DISRESPECT YOURSELF, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR COACH OR YOUR
SCHOOL, GOOD LUCK IN THE FUTURE, AND REMEMBER HARD WORK
DOES PAYOFF, ON THE COURT AND ESPECIALLY IN THE CLASSROOM

What a great hire for St. Rita. Look out for them to be a force to reckon with in the near future.

I WONDER IF YOU VOTE ANONYMOUSLY AS WELL, USE YOUR GOD
GIVEN NAME AND STEP UP TO THE PLATE, THIS COACH HAS HIS
WORK CUT OUT FOR HIM, WORD ON THE STREET IS THAT MOST
OF HIS TEAM, THEY HAVE TRANSFERRED OUT OF ST. RITA!
ST. RITA HAS A GREAT REPUTATION, BUT IT IS GOING TO TAKE
TIME FOR COACH TO GET HIS PROGRAM UP AND RUNNING!
