Re: “‘Ultimate playbook’ gave Frosty inspiration for life” (TNT, 5-5).

It’s been said that a teacher or coach can affect a person for a lifetime, and no one can tell where his or her influence stops. For anyone fortunate enough to have known Coach Frosty Westering, that certainly defines him and is a fitting legacy.

Bottom line: Frosty used the football field as his classroom, and countless young people are better off for it.

One of his players observed that “football was just a vehicle he used to show what was beyond.” Aptly put.
