A: I have coached field hockey and lacrosse for the past 36 years.  I started to coach when I started to teach.  My passion for athletics, especially field hockey and lacrosse, led me to want to coach so I could share that  passion with the student athletes.
Q: There are countless moments in your coaching career that are, to this day, greatly celebrated. Are there any that really stick out to you amongst the rest?
A: I have been fortunate to have some great moments.  They are all special in their own way and will always remain with me.
Q: You’ve received many awards including being named Newsday’s Coach of the Decade. What do you say to a new coach hoping to have a prosperous career like yours?
A: Share your passion and knowledge with the student athletes.  Athletics is not just about winning and losing. A few things athletics teaches you that will help you in life are self-discipline, passion, commitment, teamwork, trust, respect, determination, hard work, positive attitude, perseverance and accountability. If you take these values into life, you will be successful at whatever you attempt.
Q: What has it meant to coach at Garden City High School for nearly three decades?
A: I have been very fortunate to have chosen a profession I absolutely love. I could never have imagined how fulfilling it would be.  My time at Garden City led me to coach such remarkable players, meet amazing parents and feel supported by a wonderful community and school administration. A head coach can not succeed without a strong group of assistant coaches on staff.  I have been blessed with some of the most talented, focused, and unselfish coaches during my career.
Q: Your work ethic and dedication to the sport has stood out for many in your time coaching. In your own owns, what do you want people to remember most about your time with the school?
A:I want people to remember that I helped promote positive values of integrity, hard work and unselfishness in promoting these young ladies to be positive members of society.  It is not about winning and losing but rather the way the game is played and how one is remembered.
Q: What will you miss the most about coaching and what are you excited for in retirement?

A: I will miss coaching a team and the many different relationships and moments that are shared each season.  Each team and each season is special.  It has always felt like having another family.  Each one has a special place in my heart.
