J.C. Redman was my little league coach when I was 10,11,and 12 years old. He always talked about doing the right thing and being respectful toward others. I have coached football, basketball,track,softball, and baseball and he had a major impact on how I coached and taught for the last 21 years. Thanks for being such a great father figure and role model. Michael Saul
