Coach D is the most dedicated, hard-working and knowledgeable coach, I have had in my high school, college, and professional career. If it weren’t for him I wouldn’t have won my Florida State Wrestling Championship, a two-time captain on a D1 football team. Thank you for all you’ve done for me Coach!!
