Jimmy V

Posted on 4th March, by andybarkett in Staff. No Comments

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.
