Best College Team Phoenix 2009 - Phoenix College women's softball team

It may seem odd to select the Phoenix College Bears fast-pitch softball squad as the Valley's best team in a year when they didn't win the national championship. After all, the school had won five previous nationals in a row, a remarkable feat by any measure. But, heck, they finished second (to a team from Normal, Illinois) and destroyed the local competition for the 10th straight season. The Bears consistently rank high in academics, which counts for something in our book. For a body of work that grabbed our attention years ago and continues to shine, Phoenix College softball hits a home run in our park.

Wow. I am writing about my dad. He is the Head Coach for Phoenix College Softball. I would suggest visiting his office. There are more accomplishments to mention. Not only is he a phenominal coach, (Phoenix College Hall of Fame Member and more) he is an oustanding mentor, father, grandfather, and friend. I am extremely proud of what my dad has accomplished and I believe this article should expand on his overall career. He is truly an inspiration to those who want to achieve academic as well as athletic goals now and in the future. Thank you for honoring him, but I do everyday. He's my dad.
