Question: Who Was Your Best Coach Ever?

Item: Legendary CHS basketball coach Elmer Jordan was buried today

Ex-CHS basketballer Don Haynes: "He saved me as a kid. I wasn't a very stable young kid. He was always doing something for kids. He never told anybody what he did for kids. Over the years I've talked to a number of people who would say 'you know what he did for me? He did a lot for me.' "

DFO: I had a series of bad coaches in baseball, in high school and community college. Some were simply incompetent, coaching a secondary sport they didn't understand. My best coach, I guess, was my Little League coach, Leonard Reynolds -- mebbe the only one who took time to show me the game and liked me as a person.
