I'm saddened by the passing of Jamie, he was a great guy, good friend, and one heck of a coach! He was one of my inspirations growing up wrestling. He was a kind soul full of wisdom, and wasn't afraid to tell me I was wrong ALWAYS! He's in a way better place now, I just hope they have the sports package on TV!
