Sorry I'm just now getting around to addressing this but it would be remiss if I didn't. I've been the Ring Announcer for pro boxing in DC for the past 22 yrs, and transitioned to the Game Announcer for Don Bosco's basketball team at the tail end of this past season.

I witnessed firsthand how Coach Frank Simpson took a group of marginally talented guys and molded them into an unselfish, cohesive unit with confidence they could win any game...evident by the unprecedented accomplishment they just achieved.

Mr. Simpson deserves credit for not just coaching a team to victories..but for instilling characteristics that helped turn these boys into young men..and which will allow them to Win in Life!

Kudos Coach Simpson. You are a Master Teacher...well done.
