Barry’s skill as both a listener and communicator has a noteworthy track record of success outside of the scope of business into his philanthropic passion of coaching basketball and mentoring young people.
I know Dave has been telling you about this bio from the Monte Vista Basketball program.
You'll be happy to note that Tyler was the only player that did not credit his parent(s) as his most influential person. That honor went to you. Want to pay for his college? ;) Congratulations on your NCS showing.
Not bad for a coach who was so concerned about his team early on. Wish us luck for tomorrow, we will need it!
Bye for now,
Barry is kind and selfless to the point where he devotes a huge amount of
time, thought and effort to helping me improve my mental fortitude and confidence,
while his only reward can be my gratitude and seeing my improvement.
For this reason I look at our relationship firstly with tremendous appreciation and feel ridiculously lucky to know him..
