Basketball coach both a mentor and a role model

Dear Editor,

A letter to the editor from a former player of Tonasket basketball coach Agustin Pedregon:

Coach Pedregon: I want to start by thanking you for being my mentor, friend and a great role model. I admire and respect you tremendously for being you. You have taught me how to be a better player, but most important a better person. Thank you for always staying firm on your decisions especially when it came to discipline and hard work. Without those two things I know I would have never made it to where I am now. I know you are as humble as they come, but you need to know what a great coach you are. Once again thank you coach for being “You” and for the positive impact you continue to have in my life.

Yo Boy!
