Stats are great indicators but aren't the whole story-- professional contracts, however, are about the numbers that matter to people who pay for talent-some think of it as a real indication of value and impact 🥇✝️🍀
If we are calling balls and strikes give the young man credit for his loyalty to the school, commitment to the program, his work ethic, and surviving a difficult environment. In fact, he and Butler gave way more to the staff then they received in return and never complained-- and yes the coaches helped but I give more credit to Faw for his success
