“Anything I ever faced, every difficulty, every adversity, as an athlete and off the field, I was prepared to face as Coach Pettine taught us. Never give up. Expect great things to happen. Make them happen by outworking your opponent and relying on your team and your brothers around
you to seize the day.”
“He taught you how to be a man in the right way, just by learning to respect yourself, respect your teammates; respect the game. Just so many good things that he brought to all of us.”
