UNTIL THE END OF TIME...


"Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them: a desire, a dream, a vision."



“Maybe it's my fault.
Maybe I led you to believe it was easy when it wasn't.
Maybe made you think my highlights started at the free throw line, 

and not in the gym.
Maybe I made you think that every shot I took was a game winner.
That my game was built on flash, and not fire.
Maybe it's my fault that that you didn't see that failure gave me strength;
that my pain gave my motivation.
Maybe I led you to believe that basketball was a God given gift, 

and not something I worked for... every single day of my life.
Maybe I destroyed the game.
Or maybe... you’re just making excuses.”
-- Michael Jordan

LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION

To Whom It May Concern: 

I am writing this letter of recommendation on behalf of Andy Jimenez. First of all I want to make it known that not only is Andy a remarkable athlete, but he is also an excellent student and an even better human being. He manages his priorities in a professional manner by always being on time for practices and games and by maintaining a 3.4 grade point average. However, above all else he would love to have the chance to play basketball at the NBA level. I have had the opportunity to coach Andy for three seasons, and in that time he has learned how to be an extraordinary leader, along with his superb work ethic, he consistently puts one hundred and ten percent of himself into practices, games, schooling, and contributing with local communities. 

With his skill level as high as it is, he has carried the load and led our team to two undefeated seasons, three playoff appearances and two championships. Andy is the type of player who will want the ball when the game is on the line. He shows great determination and poise when the pressure is on. He has also assisted me in shaping new and upcoming players; passing on his knowledge and know-how of the game, but what stands out from the rest is his mental toughness, high IQ, persistence and God given talent, the kind that only a rarity of athletes are blessed with.

You will not come across another athlete as passionate about the game of basketball as Andy is. His love for the game is off the charts, he eats, sleeps, and breathes basketball. He’s always finding new ways to improve his overall game and is mindset is truly optimistic, intelligent, and potent even at the darkest moments, it still outshines the situations, making his teammates, coaches and peers feed off his positive energy. Andy is the one of the most versatile athletes I’ve ever witnessed and once you add that with his passion, dedication, experience, creativity, and respectfulness you’re formulating a recipe of success. This young man is the type of athlete any coach would love to have on his/her team, or should I say be privileged to have. He has mastered the forward position, but is not only limited to that. He is willing to play any position on the court and will do extremely well at wherever he plays, he will not let up and he always tries his hardest, what more can a coach ask for.


Sincerely,

3-time NBA Champion A.C. Green
