R.I.P Leola Greer

Yesterday, the K-Man was incredibly saddened to hear about the loss of yet another important athletic figure in the city of Pontiac.
There simply weren't many more class acts in the entire city and county than Leola Greer, who died suddenly of cancer on Tuesday afternoon.
Greer coached basketball at Pontiac Northern for 24 years and volleyball at the school for nearly that long as well.
She was well-liked by the kids, and rightfully so. She brought discipline, fairness and a compassion for her players that many coaches should try to emulate.
Didn't matter if her team won by 20 or lost by 20, she always has been there after the game to talk to Kosmo's spies with a smile on her face and an appreciation for people in general.
There aren't many like her around anymore. She will be sorely missed. Here's hoping Pontiac is able to find a replacement that can have half the impact Greer did.
Kosmo's sympathies and prayers go out to Greer's family, Pontiac High School and the people of Pontiac who knew her so well.
