RIP Pat Summitt, legendary Tennessee basketball coach, and an inspiration to two generations of young athletes.
It truly is a great loss, especially for us here in Knoxville. She was one of, if not the best, coaches in all of college sports and a great person/ambassador for the game.
I had always wanted an autographed basketball from her and my wife, as a surprise birthday present, went to campus and purchased a Lady Vols basketball. On a whim, she went to Pat's office just to see if she was around and would she be willing to autograph the ball. My wife tells me she welcomed her into her office and happily signed the ball. It is one of my all-time treasured items of Volunteer sports.
RIP Coach Summitt and thanks for everything...
