Bennett's Impact Still Felt in Pacific Northwest -- Jeff White

6

Former Washington State forward Daven Harmeling, "It really hurts me when I hear Cougar fans -- not that it happens a lot -- but every now and then I'll hear somebody say something like, 'Tony left us,' and every time it just breaks my heart to hear that, because people don't know all the circumstances. People aren't in Tony's life and don't know his family and what was best for him and all that." "Anybody that's played for Tony or Dick just has undying loyalty to them. So it just kind of hurts me to hear anything negative said about Tony, because I believe in everything he's about so much, and he's changed so many of my closest friends' lives because of playing for him." Harmeling's words reminded Tony Bennett of the positive impact coaches can have on their players. "It was great to see him, and see him doing well," Bennett said. "That's what you always hope. In a way it's like it's your own kids. You're proud of them like a dad or an older brother. But when you see that they've adjusted well and are doing well and are happy in life, that's the most gratifying thing."
