Rosetti said, “You say Bucket List, I’ve wanted to be here since I knew she was here. Whatever I’ve done filming, I was hoping it would give me a chance to get here. I mean listen, that’s the greatest thing about Mississippi if you’re an athlete, and I’m Happy and proud just to be associated with some of these people, people I’ve known all my life, some of whom I’ve known recently, but it’s just an honor.”

Rosetti and the company will be officially honored on the last weekend of July 2023 over the weekend at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame Induction.
