Congressman John Duncan

Representing the 2nd District of Tennessee

The Legend of Coach Pat Summitt

June 28, 2016
Press Release

“Tennessee lost a true legend today. While she holds NCAA records for men or women sports and won many championships and awards, her most impressive is the 100 percent graduation rate of her players. “Pat Summitt was certainly the most admired and respected woman in Tennessee, sports, and this Nation. Her fans and influence reach far beyond the borders of Tennessee. “I had the privilege of being her honorary coach twice. She also invited me to join her on her many trips to the White House including when she won the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award, the Nation’s highest civilian honor. “She was a true friend to me and all of Tennessee.” ###
