To Coach Eckert,

You taught me how to be the best man that I could be. You showed me that without people doing the little things in life, you won’t accomplish the bigger things. Everyday for the past three years, coming to basketball was an outlet and was a time to be with a group of people that I call my family and I thank you for it.

You always had a positive outlook on life and always seemed to make us laugh. You wanted us to be the best on the court and the best off the court. Through all your stories,quotes, and life lessons I have become a better son, friend, and man. You made sure that we did the right things on and off the court and through this I know what it takes to reach my full potential. I want to thank you for helping me understand myself and the world around me. I have grown so much in the past three years and I look up to you as a mentor and family.

I learned that life is bigger than myself and you have influenced my life so much. I thank you for pushing me to my limits even when I didn’t want to because you saw something more in me. I want to thank you for the sacrifices you made for the team to make us the best. I catch myself quoting you because of how much you influenced my life.

Thank you for everything you have done,

Xavier Coleman
