John LaBonty Reflects on Induction into Montana Coaches Hall of Fame

 


Dear Friends in Glasgow,

This last Thursday, my wife and I sat on the stage on Great Falls and I was inducted into the Montana Coaches Hall of Fame. As I sat there, I thought of all the people I need to thank.

I would like to thank 36 years of close friends and colleagues. Then there's all those mentors that taught me so much; and all the assistant coaches that gave me good advice and became close friends. But most of all: the hundreds of Glasgow athletes that I coached. This award was only possible through their hard work, sweat, sacrifice and some pain. I was always proud of all of you and it was a pleasure to have known you and coached you. And also, a thank you to all the parents who trusted me with their kids.

There are tears between the lines but they are tears of joy for 36 good years. You all share this honor and for that I sincerely thank you.

Coach John LaBonty
