Dear Maroon Tide supporters,

I want to thank all of you who have supported the program for the last two years.

I wished that my stay at Picayune could have been longer because I believe that

we had things heading in the right direction.  However, I have a great opportunity

to return to my hometown and coach my Alma Mater, Ouachita Christian.  It is

closer to my family and, as I teach all my players, family comes first.

Thank you to the teachers and staff who have been supportive. Thank you to

Ms. Tammy Dragon for being the booster club president .  Thank you to the

Pleasant Valley Missionary Baptist Church and Mr. Larry Breland for all of

their support.  A special thanks goes out to the voice of the Tide, Mr. Carey

Meitzler.   He gave advice and support to all the players and myself especially

when times were tough.  There are many others who made my job easier;

I wish that I could thank them all.

I wish the best of luck to next year's basketball team and know that they

will be successful.
