Our 42nd president, President Bill Clinton, was in town Monday to speak to Fayette County students at Rupp Arena. While he was here, he wanted – and we wanted him – to meet the team.
Mr. Clinton stopped by just after lunch and met in our locker room at the Joe Craft Center. The players had a chance to introduce themselves and take individual pictures with the president before we took a team picture with him.
What really meant a lot to me is the fact that he said he had never seen a group this talented that played so well together as a team. He said, “Problems in the world and problems in the United States can only be solved by teamwork. That’s it. This team has taught us the lesson that the higher the mountain, the more the team must be connected.”
