Coach Mounts had a great big sense of humor and a big heart to match. He could always crack us up. I can still see him shake his head, chomping his gum, and saying, "Bakes..." about something I didn't do right during basketball practice. My mental picture of Mr. Mounts and Mr. Falk painting my in-laws' house still cracks me up....what a team! RIP, Coach.
