Watching them grow.

I was very pleased to see that Joe Raver will take over operation at Hillenbrands at the end of the year. Joe played basketball for me in the early 1980′s. He was just a sophomore at the time, but he was an excellent member of our varsity. Joe went on to get a degree at Dartmouth and has other degrees since then. What this article is about is seeing the kids you coached in high school grow up and go out into the world and make a name for themselves. Joe was part of a group of athletes on that team that were very special to coach in high school, but you knew in your mind that this was just a start on what they would eventually become. They were special in ways that were hard to put into words, but you knew you were dealing with kids where basketball was just a start of their stardom. This is the reason I coached as much as the joy of winning. You became a part of these kids lives, and just like your own kids, you want the best for them. I was very fortunate because I coached in three schools, and the kids at Whitewater and Batesville were from good families with good work ethics. Whatever you gave to them they returned many folds over. Joe will be a good fit for Hillenbrand, Inc., and he is homegrown and will have Batesville in his best interest. Just another in a long line of great athletes and students who made me look very good while teaching and coaching at BHS.
