Coach says thanks
I would like to extend my most sincere appreciation to all of those responsible for the honor that was given to me at the Center Drive School ceremony to recognize my 50 years of coaching. A special thanks to Rick Cortis who organized this wonderful evening, along with Principal Jim White, Bill Collins, John Huard, John Holyoke, Jim Poulin, and Lee Cabana for their kind words and recognition.
Special thanks to George Hale, commentator, along with the WABI-TV team, the players of the CDS faculty team and the Eaglets cheerleaders for their contributions to this successful event.
The people of Orrington, my friends, and former players made the evening complete and unforgettable. It was heartwarming to have my children, grandchildren, brother and Marilyn share this special evening with me. It has been 50 years of fun, learning, and joy for me to be able to promote a love of sports for young people.
