I think I can help others just by my example.
I've got a great staff and great support system, and I'm going to stick my neck out and do what I always do.
When you grow up on a dairy farm, cows don't take a day off. So you work every day and my dad always said, 'No one can outwork you.'
Competition got me off the farm and trained me to seek out challenges and to endure setbacks; and in combination with my faith, it sustains me now in my fight with Alzheimer's disease.
Most people get excited about games, but I've got to be excited about practice, because that's my classroom.
Class is more important than a game.
I hate to sound this way but, 'Why me? Why me with dementia?'
I don't want to sit around the house. I want to be out there. I want to go to practice. I want to be in the huddles. That's me.
I can remember trying to coach, trying to figure out schemes, and it just wasn't coming to me.
I lost my confidence.
I'd wake up in the morning and I would think, 'Where am I?' I'd have to gather myself.
Sometimes I draw blanks.
