Coach Juett was getting exasperated with us Waggener HS sophomores struggling in his geometry class. He told us, “There are six weeks in the grading period. If I could go through and survive Army bootcamp for six weeks, you can survive six weeks of geometry.” His motivational speech and his story got me through his math course, my Navy bootcamp and many other times in life. And I still say that line to myself. Thanks Coach Juett for living a wonderful life and inspiring hundreds of students and players. God Bless You.
