Review quote

Pappy was the ultimate gentleman and the ultimate coach. I don't make any secret of the fact that i tried to pattern myself after him in every way-professionally and personally. -- John Ralston, former college and NFL coach Pappy touched the lives of countless players, friends, and others, not only from the sporting world but from all walks of life. Somehow, he was destined to be a kind of master-one who commanded attention, repect and admiration. -- Les Richter, All-American linebacker, NFL All-pro, NASCAR executive Pappy Waldorf wasn't just a great coach. He was the best teacher i ever met. He just happened to be a great teacher who was coaching football. -- Clark Kerr, former Chancellor, University of California
