When you play basketball, you are developing relationship skills; skills that will help you in other areas of your life." Rod Watson is one of the most humble guys I know. He was transparent about his personal life. He was real and the young men appreciated his honesty and candor. He praised them for what they're doing and encouraged them to use their skills in all of life. "Don't waste it!" He boldly exhorted the young men.
All of life revolves around interpersonal relationships. Rod admitted that his life was built upon achieving individual skills, but it has made him successful in his own way. He recognizes the value of team-building and that's what he did at BWAP - with his words he built a team of believers with inner-city young men.
Psychologists talk about inner personal intelligence and that's what these guys are building in the BWAP Program. Rod talked about rules. "Martin Luther King played by the rules, to change the rules and change the world. You guys can change Buffalo!" Thanks Rod, you were phenomenal and humble, those are uniquely inter-personal team building qualities. We will let you coach us anytime! Jesus loves you and so do we.
