“On behalf of Redan High School we pass our deepest condolences on the passing of our teacher and Boy’s Varsity Basketball Coach, Dannie Love. To say Coach Love was a larger than life character would be an understatement. He will always be remembered here as a great teacher and coach. His on the court competitive style and skill were only surpassed by his incredible positive influence and zest for life off the court.”
