  1. Now wouldn’t it be great to have Johnny come back home and coach the Hornets? Even better to add Robert Kent coaching the boys!

  2. Coach Ralls is a class act. I would have to say he is probably one of the top 3 coaches ever in women’s basketball in the triad. 701 wins is a rare feat in one sport.
