    This is your best work to date. Great questions to give insight into a great coach and more important a great MAN! I believe this supports what most already know that Coach McGee has brought in not only great coaches but men who will build these players into future leaders both in and outsidde of football. Insightfull reporting. Thank you.

    I realize we can’t truly know people from a short video, but I REALLY like this staff. It’s great to have people like Coach Williams and Coach McGee representing the program. This whole series of interviews has been great. The AD has done a great job.
