(KSDK Sports) -- It was an emotional night at Mater Dei High School, where the school honored former volleyball coach Fred Rakers.
In his 35 years, he won 1,046 games and six Illinois State Championsips. Sadly, the Hall of Famer's body has been taken over by cancer.
We received a number of emails and tweets about Fred, fans wanting to let others know how special he is. We join them in saying "thank you" to Fred Rakers.
