‘Cody and the other gentleman who coached the WRs at the Pittsburgh Youth Camp made their corner of the field the IT place. They brought amazing energy to their drills, and you could tell it was the place all the kids wanted to go to. Their willingness to talk to individual kids while also coaching the rest showed they are dedicated to the kids. My son Terry will be back next year and the year after, and hopefully Cody remains a part of that staff. It was a joy to watch.’ (Georgina S.)
