    Twenty-five years ago, Jim Valvano made his famous speech at the ESPY awards, “don’t give up, don’t ever give up.” This speech is one of the most popular speeches ever given about a coach’s day-to-day battle with cancer.

    For Junior Lady Hawk Softball player Kellee Cundiff, on a smaller scale, the same could hold true about not giving up. Kellee Cundiff has undergone two knee surgeries over the last fifteen months and has continued to keep fighting to play the game she loves.
