Coach Matthews sets the example

When JMU head football coach Mickey Matthews received a financial award as the 2008 Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year for Division 1AA, he knew just what he wanted to do with it–make a difference and set the example for others. He gave $15,000 to the United Way of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County.

The “Daily News-Record” quotes Matthews: “I tell my players they’ve got to make a difference in people’s lives,” Matthews said. “I am humbled by being a member of this community. You all give [wife] Kay and I your friendship. We love this town.”

Thanks, Coach, for leading the way.
