Not sure what to say?

It is with great honor that The "Skip Prosser Classic" will be held this winter between Prosser's two high school coaching stops, Linsly and Wheeling Central on January 26th 2017. This game is intended to not only preserve then name of Coach Prosser, but also to establish a scholarship fund in his name for both prep schools. Prosser was an outstanding example of integrity, work ethic, and fair play. His legacy continues, not only at major colleges, but on the prep level where he...

My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Nancy and the entire Prosser family. As a long time Nc State, DUke, Carolina, and Wake Forest fan. He was a great coach and will be sorely missed.-DIane Burns sports fan Raleigh,Nc

Hey Skipper! I am enjoying setting up my Christmastime drive from Florida to Winchester, VA to Cincinnati, OH via Rock Hill, SC. I want to see the Winthrop Eagles play and see Mark and Pat in action. It's at home against Wofford so there is added potential drama in the house. I will do my best to forward the initiative to produce the legacy film I am inspired to make. With this country and the world in a moral spiraling nose-dive, the people need stories and individuals that bring hope,...

Greetings Skipper! On this special day I'm thinking of you as I work late in the editing room. Thanks for your occasional indications of how to proceed with sharing your story for the highest good of others. I remain enthusiastic that with your high-level guidance, all the pieces will come together whereby your inspirational story can be shared with an audience that needs it. Regardless, I am so honored and blessed to have known you since the days you attended Kings Point and being your...

Hey Skip! Thinking of you this late Sunday morning as the Deacs head to Duke for a very pivotal game this evening. Your authentic friendship with Dino shows in his winning ways and his focus on 'the kids'. You have passed such benevolence forward and now we must take our 'ability to respond' similarly in a caring and kind 'response-able' manner. I hope you can enjoy tonight's victory.

I grew up watching Wake Forest basketball as a kid and teenager. Starting back with Tim Duncan but when I grew older in my early teens Skip became the coach of the Demon Deacons. I worked hard through school and tried my hardest for so many years to go to Wake Forest to meet Skip because I thought he was a great man. It was a two weeks before I sent off my early application to Wake that Skip passed away. I'm sad that as I am a Wake Forest student today that I will never truly know the man...

Well Skip; it's been a year now and we all still miss you!!! I don't think Demon Deacon Basketball will ever be quite the same without you. You are and will always be forever in our Hearts. God Speed my Friend!!!!
