Pressure is a choice
The world treats winners different than losers
Time is the ultimate game
Passion will persuade reality
Coach you’ve been a genius for so many of us. A friend, our charming second Dad we all thought was just so cool
I love you forever

Will never be able to express my gratitude for you. You allowed me to achieve something very few get to do. You taught me how to win, how to be a great teammate and more than anything to be a great person. I’m thankful for the relationship we had between the lines and out. RIP16

When Augie Garrido published “Life is Yours to Win,” this is what he wrote inside of mine. For a young writer that was trying to find his way in this business, it meant so much. #HookEm pic.twitter.com/aW3cSLvScH

Coach, we are all privileged to have played for, worked for, and known you as a friend. You lived more in 79 years than most could in 150. We are all better because of you. #RIPAG16

Very tough year so far in college baseball. First Jerry Kindall and now Augie Garrido. Eight combined national championships between these two legends.

I’m so appreciative that I got an opportunity to say I played for you. Then to have some of my teams compete against you was an honor. Thanks for what you did for so many of us. RIP #legend pic.twitter.com/FhDgTKT2Nd
