    I'm glad Mike is going back to coaching. As a former classmate,I always knew Mike was going to go far with basketball. That is his love. He also had charm and a fun sense of humor. He put our school on the map playing in the NBA.(Glenn Hills High) As well as a former classmate (RIP)Charles "BOO" Evans in the NFL. Your classmates are proud of your accomplishments. And adding intergrity to that, you came back home and starting giving back ,to our youths and community.
