Hello Rich,
I am reading Playing Without the Ball. And I am doing a project for my reading class and I was wondering if you could send me a quote for our author graffiti wall.

Sincerely, Kyle Halcott

Hello Mr.Wallace,


I was wondering if you can tell me about your self. I am doing a project on Playing without the ball. If you can tell me why and what made you write about it.

What I mean tell me about your self. Is your bio because I have to tell when you were born and where you were born and etc.
Sincerely Kc Knaub
