Great Moments – Demonstrating Class

I just wanted to make sure you understand how good of a job you are doing with your young men. They battled hard and I was very impressed with them all night long. But I wanted to pin-point something that deserves a compliment.

At the end of the game when the two teams huddled up at half court to pray together there were some pretty cool moments. First, your guys decided to mix it up and not all stand together but intermingle with each of our guys. This was a great moment.

Then one of your players came over to one of our captains and gave him the opportunity to pray for the group. He was very honored to be asked to pray. We know that not all schools even allow this. So, we want to say "thank you" for allowing us to be a part of this great moment.

Then at the end, some of your guys told our guys to stay and chanted “family” together with our guys. Your young men showed so much class and they deserve to be acknowledged for showing such good sportsmanship and class throughout the game and evening. Please let them know that we have nothing but respect for them and we wish you all the best of luck going forward in the tournament.
