Tom Izzo makes tearful speech at Lacey Holsworth vigil

Michigan State coach Tom Izzo attended a vigil for the late Lacey Holsworth on the Michigan State campus and signed the rock before speaking to the many students there. Holding back tears at times, he thanked the students and gave them quite the speech.

“When you face some tough times, make sure that you just keep fighting through it,” Izzo told the students. Watch the speech in the YouTube clip in this post. It’s a fine piece of teaching from a man who makes a living doing it.

Izzo recounts for the students gathered there how Lacey’s father described Lacey’s last few days to him. “She was smiling when she died,” Izzo said. “I’m not sure I’d be that tough.”
