Thanks for all of your encouragement over the years you don’t know how much impact you have on the women’s life that you touch. Keep up the hard work!!”"
Linda Reinard, mother of Catherine, Lord Botetourt c/o '20

"She wanted to give you a huge thank you and appreciation for everything you’ve done for her. And believe me she let them all know how awesome you are last night. You see, some who came last night hadn’t seen her play in couple years. They asked what have you been doing and she said I give it all to Houser. Said you have helped her more than anything. Told them they need come to you. That’s it’s all worth it."
Beth McMillion, mother of Savannah, Woodrow Wilson, West Va, c/o '21

Thanks for believing in her and all the girls because it makes such a difference in their lives, their self-esteem and everything. Anyway can’t wait to see you too."

July 8, 2016:
"I'm prepping for my season and was wondering if you could email me any coaching tips/materials that you think may be helpful! The year that I played on your team was probably my favorite season. I admire your coaching methods, and I would love to learn as much as possible!!"
Kendra Meek Williams, head coach Greer Middle College, Taylors SC
