Like any good game plan, winning means you have to prepare relentlessly and execute effectively.
That's one reason why national championship coach Marsha Sharp was so successful, and it's also the reason behind the success of the Lubbock freeway bearing her name.
Last month, officials cut the ribbon that opened the gateway across Lubbock from east to west. the Marsha Sharp Freeway.
This 8-mile corridor has made commute times easier, connected more consumers to businesses, and unified separate sections of the city.
The way this project was conceived, organized, and executed is nothing short of exceptional, and they did it 12 years ahead of schedule.
Now I am often very critical of government. but this time they absolutely got it right.
Recognition goes to the hundreds of volunteers, the Texas Department of Transportation, former city council members, and other state and local officials.
So, much like Marsha Sharp herself, this freeway is a bonafied winner.
