    Much respect, Coach Kelly!

    Although my son didn’t play for you but against you in previous years, my family has admired your coaching style for years. You’ve managed to get the best out of your players, playing them strategically. And, you knew how to work the refs. It was all about the game and the boys and never about your ego (as I’ve seen in our program).

    Congratulations! Well deserved!
