“I am so honored to be considered for the Hall of Fame induction. Through my time, I had the opportunity to work with such talented and committed people and great players, which was just a blessing. A lot of good people making important changes in that time and also up to now. It was an exciting opportunity and a wonderful chance to create something and help be a part of it.”
