“For me, it was an honor just to go to Monmouth (University Write on Sports camp) and have an opportunity to sit on one of the sessions with the students, be able to be interviewed by the students as well as a radio person and to get a true feel for what they are accomplishing. It was absolutely a great day for me”

Hubie Brown, former NBA coach and current NBA broadcaster
