Coach Jabo coached basketball at Safety Harbor Middle School for 25 years. His blanket is a memento of all these years of coaching. “Coaching for 25 years, I saw many players move on and play on major college teams. Three of my boys even became players in the NBA.
I just retired after 36 years of teaching, 33 years at Safety Harbor Middle and 25 years of coaching basketball. Many of my players are going to join me for a party to celebrate my retirement, our 12 championships and an overall record of 225 wins. I will be handing out old game tapes, scorebooks and stat sheets and have my blanket proudly displayed.
This blanket represents all the years of coaching great players that went on to become great men”
