Go Kenny!! Rollie was the best and so is your spirit. Working at Rollie's summer hoop camps was epic - especially when he used to catch us napping in the Connelly Center on those 90 degree days!
Rollie’s place in the Hall of Fame is never more significant than in the face of the current college pay for play scandal. To his final days, Rollie was a teacher, a mentor, a coach who loved the game and loved his players like his kids.
Rollie never stopped teaching anything is possible if you try your hardest. His Cinderella moments were not limited to 1985. There was a game at Seton Hall in the early 90s with Nova down by eleven with about 1:30 left in the game. Rollie tells the kids to foul. Oy, they foul Brian Caver... but he misses the front end and Woodard hits a quick 3. “Foul again.” Seton misses the bag end and we race down for a quick lay up. This went back & forth & we chipped a point or two off each possession. Nova managed to tie the game and just ran with it in overtime.
Please no comments about my Dad and I, this is all about Rollie's impact
