Geoff,

Thanks for sharing this with us once again. It's so very easy to become cynical about the world around us and we see that in a lot of posters' words on this site....and I'm probably guilty of doing so as well. But this is such an inspirational young man, family and coach that ready or not, watching this feature can't help but have an impact on most.

Thanks again.
