Hes gonna take it one game at a time.I think hes going to love it, Haynes said. He justs gonna keep pressing on. Hes gonna enjoy it for the moment and look for the next ballgame.Even with 900 wins to his name, Adger hasnt lost his fiery style. His players say thats what makes him a legend.He is the GOAT of Glen Oaks basketball, Jackson said. Hes the GOAT of Baton Rouge basketball coaching, and Louisiana coaching.Permalink Comments
