Kenneth Dion Lee

I only wish I could have
spoken to him to tell him I
wanted to thank him for
trying to make me a better
person Despite the things I
went through at
Northwestern, I love him as a
human being and as another
black man... As a young man
you have dreams and you're
disappointed when you think
someone is preventing them
from becoming reality. You
think you know
everything...When you grow
older you have a different

Coach Byrdsong did what he
did because he genuinely
wanted to make me a better
person. Although I hated
his methods, and although it
didn't go the way either he
or I wanted it to, I thank him
for trying to help me.

the center of the Northwestern

called the Tribune to talk about
his former coach.
