Recipient's comments: "Itstill really hasn't hit me (scoring the winning goal in the state championship game). Every time I see a newspaper I think 'Oh my gosh, Ican't believe I did that.' The goal came off a corner shot. I passedit to Audrey Van Norman and she gave me a short pass back and I justcranked it. After that, it was the slowest-moving game I've ever played in."
