Cory Gray has coached the Scecina Crusaders softball team since 2013, winning a state championship in his first year. Last summer he suffered a stroke and spent months in rehab. His story was the subject of news stories leading up to the 2017 IHSAA State Championship softball game on June 10. The Crusaders won the championship, beating Elwood 6-2. 

Coach Gray wanted to share his statement with the Scecina community: 

“Thanks for all the support, but with the talent these girls have, I knew it was just a matter of time before it happened! These kids are just too special! Two city championships, four (Indiana Crossroads) conference championships losing one game in their four years (in the ICC), four sectional championships, four regional championships. It was just a matter of time! 

"These girls are special! And it's not about me! These girls did it and we just needed to get out of the way! Again they were very special! But it wouldn't be right without a huge thank you too, Pat Miles, Brad Streeval, and Mike Troutman, who saved me many times on paperwork! It's been a great run!”

What a GREAT STORY! Lady Crusaders Win ISHAA 2A State Softball Championship! The story behind the story was Coach Cory Gray's massive and nearly fatal stroke last year that was on the minds of the girls as they gave that "Extra Effort" to win the State Championship for COACH as coached them to victory.

It looks like some of the text within your content are running off
the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
This may be a problem with my internet browser because I've had this happen previously.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?
I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would
be greatly appreciated. Cheers
