"Guys,I really appreciate it," the coach told the guard members. "And i tell you, we're so proud of all of you over there, and what you do, and the courage you have. I can't begin to tell you how impressed, and what you do, not many can do it. And to stand up for all of us here, and to make the commonwealth proud, which is what you do for all of us, we thank you."
