First Graduate Drafted into the NFL - Greg Jones

3 great pieces of news to share today.

1. Coach Trent Todd has been officially placed on the lung transplant list. This is a huge step. Coach Trent needs a double lung transplant and has been going through a battery of tests for months ... 

2. SportsLeader had its very first "graduate" get drafted into the NFL. Greg Jones, a linebacker who attended Cincinnati Archbishop Moeller High School and then Michigan State was drafted by the New York Giants in the 6th round. Congrats to Greg and to Coach Chris Willertz who has been mentoring Greg for about 6 years now.

Coaches - it is quite safe to say that Greg would not be in this position without the perseverance and humility of Coach Willertz.

3. Please welcome 8 new schools into the SportsLeader Character Coaches Association. 5 HS from Terre Haute, Indiana and 1 HS-1MS from Rushville, IL and 1 HS from East Peoria, IL

We did a lot of driving over the weekend but it was an awesome experience meeting so many men so dedicated to coaching and mentoring young people.

As a side note - all those who believe the world is overpopulated need to make the drive from Terre Haute, IN to Rushville, IL (smile).
