You taught me everything,
You moulded me into who I am,
You encouraged me in your own way,
You raised a boy into a man,
You never shied away from the tough questions,
You never failed to answer honestly,
You gave me opportunities,
For that I thank you.
I thank you for coaching all my junior teams,
I thank you for giving me the freedom to choose,
I thank you for showing me the value of humour,
I thank you for teaching me loyalty,
I know I don’t say it much,
But thank you.
