Back in 1968 I attended Van Breda Kolff's summer basketball camp at Lutheran High School. I remember his zealousness and attention to detail. He demonstrated the skills he taught and he pushed us, in the blazing heat of the day, to concentrate and work hard to do things correctly. He was passionate about his b-ball. A good man.

Van Breda Kolff is a Hall-of-Fame coach. It would have been a nice honor in his lifetime.
