Topic tags/keywords: jim valvano speech

If you have never seen or heard this speech do yourself a favor and take the next 11 minutes to listen to the late Coach Jim Valvano. Jim Valvano lead his NC State basketball team to an improbable win in the NCAA finals in the 1980’s. This speech come from the ESPY awards in 1993 while Jim Valvano was dyign from terminal cancer. Ive watched this speech every year since he has passed and brings me to tears every time.
