To Whom it May Concern:

This letter of recommendation is written for Mike Whalen with much pleasure and enthusiasm because of the potential I feel Mike possesses.

Mike contacted me a little over one year ago and expressed an interest in a college coaching position. I explained I didn't have any positions open but would give him a chance if he could afford to volunteer. I'm very glad Mike took the time off from school to be part of our season in 1993. He worked with our defensive backs and did a nice job.

Mike demonstrated a good work ethic, good leadership abilities and a high moral standard. He worked hard for us both on and off the field. Mike had proven to be punctual and completes his work with a high level of quality. He has a high regard for authority which in return has earned him the respect of our coaches and players.

Mike knows the meaning of hard work, dedication and discipline and had demonstrated these strong qualities in my association with him. He is a winner and will be successful. He is confident and able to express his views well. I give Mike my highest recommendation.
