One of my heroes growing up is former N.C. State Basketball Coach, Jim Valvano. As a young man, he inspired me with his words to follow my dreams. I had heard him speak, read his books and followed his career. Even though I only met him briefly, he had a large impact on my life. I remember watching the video below with tears in my eyes as one of my heroes gave me one last inspirational speech that I not only have never forgotten, but still watch multiple times a year. God Bless you Jimmy V.
