He Said It: “Once you're involved in a program or a family, you really look forward to the growth and success. We all want to do well, and there's a lot of ways to measure your success. Part of it is winning games, and the other part is just having good practices, good recruiting, and watching your kids graduate and go on to be successful in whatever they do, and that's why we're here." – Kyle
