Friday night's lights will not be the same anymore for most Manatee High Hurricane fans. It is tough to say goodbye so I will say THANKS!
Thanks, Coach Joe Kinnan, for all the great memories. You were so instrumental in defining kids' lives. There are so many young men who would have never gone beyond their high school education had it not been for you.
You will truly be missed on the sidelines and in the classroom.
I have so many memories that you have presented to me in my life time, thank you. I know it was truly a very hard decision for you. I do respect you and understand you for putting your health and family first.
I will always remember your willingness to ride in on an elephant for our post-season awards program. Thank you for keeping the Cane Tradition alive and well!
You are the best and I will never forget you.
Thanks again. Godspeed to you and your wonderful family.
