The athlete stands proudly in the gym;
“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the Attempt”
It matters little if it is basketball, archery, bowling or a swim;
With encouragement, no-one has to be exempt

Big yellow buses come and go;
Peaceful, kind, cooperative, safe, at-large;
Whether it is sunshine, clouds, rain or snow;
Witness the tall quiet leadership of a man-in-charge.

Bocce or fishing could be on the schedule.
These changes don’t phase him a bit.
Watch him work and observe if you will;
The exemplary role model is ready and fit.

What does it mean to be Coach Green?
It just isn’t as easy as it would seem.
Dollars to doughnuts, it will nearly always be true;
The best thing is to stop and ask, “What would Coach Green do?”

You are above reproach;
Character counts here at the Neu;
One thing is for certain Coach;
Next year and beyond, we will most certainly miss you. 

(c) 2017 Wes Morgan 
Wishing Coach Patrick Green all the best 
in retirement as the school year comes to a close.
