As the high school boys basketball season started the last couple of weeks, some fans attending the games might notice every now and then a head coach on the sidelines wearing a Hawaiin-style shirt. One of those coaches is Havre High boys head man Walynn Burgess who wears the Hawaiian shirt occasionally to honor his late friend and longtime basketball coach Griff Bye.
"He always had his own style," Burgess said. "There's quite a few other coaches around the state that still do it. Just one of those cool things. If you've known Griff, you wear a Hawaiin shirt as the coach."
