I would like to show my thanks and gratitude to the Holley Central School District, Kendall Central School District, administration and staff, Section 5 Wrestling, Genesee Region Wrestling, Chris Metcalf and the Batavia Daily News Staff, Mike and Cheryl Wertman and the Orleans Hub, James Johnson and the Democrat and Chronicle, Genesee Valley Pennysaver, Jeff DeVeronica, Holley-Kendall Coaching Staff, student athletes, parents, spectators, and anyone I may have neglected to mention.

Special thanks to my family and friends for all you did for me on my recent retirement from coaching wrestling after a 44-year career. Your love and support was evident over the years.

I am truly humbled and honored for all the support that you shown me and the Holley-Kendall Wrestling Program throughout the many great years.

Thank you as always.
