Letter to the Editor

I was very pleased to learn that the Alaska Association of Basketball Coaches bestowed the well-deserved honor of Coach of the Year 4A boys’ basketball upon Coach Eric Stockhausen.

For the past three years I have partnered with Eric to deliver the Coaching Boys Into Men program with the boys’ basketball varsity players. Both he and players have generously shared their time. Eric is dedicated to helping these young men be winners in life as well as on the court. He recognizes that coaching is not only about developing skills and successful teams, but about developing strong characters as well. He cares most about their future as upstanding young men. I am deeply proud of both Eric and the players. They are outstanding representatives of what is best about Ketchikan.
