TJ Thorpe on what Mike London meant to him

+

The text reads: "Regardless of what has happened I have so much love for this man right here. He embodies the terms passion, love, character, integrity, perseverance, honesty, and any other adjective you want in a coach/mentor/father. The last year regardless of expectations, stats or Ws has been the best of my life and I owe it to Coach London. Not only did he give me a second chance with football but with happiness in my life. Not many know this but when I left CH I rarely stayed in my apartment I dreaded coming to workouts and not because of the players or the fans but because of the lack of respect I had for the people upstairs. I say this to say that this man you see in this picture helped give me back the confidence I lacked and the drive to keep pushing forward. So for that I want to say thank you and it has been a pleasure playing for you. I Love You Coach."
