Column highlights the greatness of Conn

I want to personally thank Will Hammock for the column he wrote on Grayson football coach Mickey Conn ("Rams' rise starts with coach Conn," Oct. 11, Page 1B).

Having two senior boys in the Grayson program, our family has been in the program for the last four years and around the program before that. Going back seveal years, not everyone would have agreed with Hammock's comments.

But to his credit, Coach Conn continued to do the right things to build the program both on and off the field as was stated in the column. Not everyone sees the off-the-field portion, but Coach Conn is doing and always has done things the right way.

Thank you for recognizing that and for giving Coach Conn the credit he deserves. We are lucky to have such a man leading our sons.
