8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, January 23, 2016 / Volume 57 Number 4 Newell engages with youth at Kwajalein Atoll High School this week. HERO OF THE WEEK U “COACH,” FROM PAGE 3 U.S. Army photo by Jordan VinsonJV: Which nations are you going to this year? JV: This makes how many trips to the Marshalls? JV: Out of all of the clinics you hold each year, both in the States and overseas, what makes your time on Majuro, Ebeye and Kwajalein special or di erent? JV: These former players died in the past few years? JV: That near-death experience that you had months ago certainly ties into the message that you put out to the coaches and youth you meet with each year. Heart disease is, of course, one of the world’s leading killers. So, your message is less about basketball fundamentals and more about what basketball can do for people. JV: You’ve got a special championship ring that you like to bring around with you to give a bit of inspiration to the youth you speak with and earn some cool points. Probably thousands of di erent people around the world have put that ring on and maybe snapped a photo with it on. Is there something special going on here? The fact that one small ring has circled the globe so many times and been on the ngers of so many diverse people, from completely di erent cultures, socio-economic backgrounds worldviews and so on? JV: Last question: Do you ever wash that ring?!
