“In one hour, Bill captivated our team and left them with a greater desire to make a difference in our world through healthy relationships and hard work. Our team was 30-2, ranked #1 in the country for much of the year, and advanced to the Division III Final Four this season. Bill’s message was thought provoking and motivating to our team during the middle of our season, and I believe it brought our team closer together because of Bill’s powerful message about teams and relationships.”
~John Tauer, Ph.D. Head Men’s Basketball Coach & Professor of Psychology University of St. Thomas
“The Author’s words, written and spoken, left a deep impression on the young men. One 7th grader reflected upon the experience stating, ‘The way he spoke went straight into your mind.’ This is a fitting description of the impact the book and visit had on our group.”
~ Justin Margolies, Middle School Program Coordinator Fred Wells Tennis & Education Center
“Bill Roddy taking the time out of his busy schedule to speak to our team is another example of the amazing connection the St. Thomas basketball team has between its alumni and current players. Bill’s talk was very eye opening as he talked about his life experiences and his book Manhood from the Hood.”
