I am sorry for your loss. Coach was mentor to me and many other young men. He had a unique way of communicating. I can only remember snippits of our conversations but one in particular comes to mind. On one occasion, all he said to me was, "well?" This particular discussion occurred after I had surgical correction of a break of the 5th metatarsal on my right hand, suffered during practice in the old gym prior to the '64-'65 season. "Well?", Coach said. I haven't thought about it in years. Now, it hits me like Bill Stanfield. This was a teachable moment. Coach did a lot of that. Coach did not lecture me about my anger and my temper tantrums. He subtly gave me the message, which I learned. I continue to learn from his lessons. If I can be half the man Coach Stoutamire was, I'll do fine.
