"Good luck to UCLA today! Wishing all those great kids much success! Particularly the seniors in their final game in a Bruin uniform!"
Every coach that goes to a prgram has to win over the players who are in it. 'I'm a UCLA Bruin just like you are. I'm privileged to say this is my school.' There is comfort in that I've been in each of these kid's homes. I've got relationships with their parents. I can dig a little deeper, having had that relationship.
