Sound Off highlights anonymous, brief takes on the news offered via telephone by Daily News readers.


Coach Sawyer has been my son’s coach for four years. He has taught him to win and lose with integrity.  He has taught him to play with his heart. He has taught him that a team is a family to be valued and protected. He has taught him to have pride in his school and himself. That’s enough. If a grammatical error is this coach’s worst mistake, I’ll take that as my son’s role model any day.

Bartow Houston: thank you for that nice column on Clyde Harding.
