Best Wishes for a speedy recovery

I'm certain all basketball fans across the country will join me in extending warmest wishes for a speedy recovery to a group of Wolfville, Nova Scotia natives, including 16 year old Jake Kendrick, the son of legendary Wolfville, N.S. Horton H.S. Head Coach Tim Kendrick. Recently, an automobile that Jake and others including two Horton teammates were travelling in came off the road and plunged about 25 feet off a cliff near Cape Blomidon in Nova Scotia. Fortunately, all five passengers in the vehicle survived however Jake was airlifted to Halifax with a fractured skull and numerous stiches. Miraculously, doctors have verified that Jake suffered no brain damage should make a good recovery. East Coast basketball fans recognize Jake's father Tim as the head coach of the basketball factory at Horton, where the program won back-to-back Nova Scotia provincial championships, part of a string of 73 consecutive victories, believed to be a Canadian record for consecutive victories by a high school basketball team. Please join me in wishing Jake and the others involved in this accident all the best and thanks for Coach Steve Konchalski from St.FX for passing along this information.

Having coached against coach Kendrick and his Horton Griffins I have witnessed first hand his teams preparedness. His passion and love of the game is obvious.

I wish a speedy recovery to all involved in the accident.
