Deepest sympathies to the Ball Family, Vi, Jimmy, Mark and Jackie.
I wish I could attend the services, as Frank was the most important mentor in my younger life. I owe a lot to Frank Ball. He taught me how to win, how to handle losing, and how to approach the challenges in life. Heart, discipline, and humor. I have many memories of being coached by Coach Ball in both football and wrestling. I can still hear his consistent mantras: "Discipline.", "Repetition, repetition, repetition", "Many are called, few our chosen", "Every dog has his day", "Don't get your dauber down", "Stick 'em!", "It'll come". I'm sure many of his wrestlers remember these words. I coached my kids in wrestling, and they know these words, too. Frank was also a caring friend, and helped me get into college.
He was in my corner whether it was on the mat, or otherwise. God Bless, and rest in peace, Frank. Prayers and Blessings for the Ball Family.
