Without the strength and drive this man had on his football team, theres about 35 kids out there, who are in college now that think about the motivation you had for us and the way you fought made us fight with you. when my parents told me you had passed, I didnt know how to feel. I was soo happy the pain was gone. but at the same time, so upset. you showed us a way to fight as brothers and to be a family. you gave us the motivation we need to live by for the rest of our lives because of you coach. I will never forget our undefeated season. we did it for you coach. we love you. we miss you. keep looking over us.

On this your 10th anniversary I want to say thank you for your service during those dark days. Many of us are still here and wondering when we will get the call.

Hey Mike! I'll never forget our softball games. You were such a great guy. Funny, strong and always willing to listen. I remember when you were helping me out when I was thinking if leaving Highway. I have been out 10 years now and it seems like yesterday we were playing ball. What a crew that was... Miss you brother.

MIke, I remember my first days as a rookie. It was summer time and it was 102 degrees and there I was walking my foot post when you drove by me shivering because the AC in the RMP was sooo cold. With that infectious smile you said "keep cool rook" I wanted to be pissed but all I could do was laugh. You also drove me to 1PP on my last day before I moved to Ncpd. You are always with me and I wait for the day we can laugh again. RIP Brother
