Q. What is it that you do at Schuylerville High School?   
A. I was a football coach at Troy for 30 years and I have been here part-time for the last five years. I teach a couple of business classes in the morning and I coach football.

Q. How was your season this year? 
A. It was a great year! We ended up 11-2 and we lost in the state finals which is about as good as it gets with the exception of winning it. We were state runner-ups!

Q. What made you decide to come back and coach after you were retired? 
A. When I retired from teaching, a buddy of mine owned a sports marketing business and I traveled around with him for a year and a half. Then he sold his business and I knew John Bowen, the head coach at Schuylerville, for many many years. John asked me if I was interested in coming on board and coaching. I told him I was, but I didn’t really want to be an outsider to the boys. I said if there was something down here that I could do part-time I would be really excited about it. Doctor Sherman, the superintendent, had called and said that they needed somebody for the business learning lab and somebody to teach business learning classes so that’s how I fell into it.

Q. Do you live in Schuylerville? 
A. I actually live in Saratoga.

Q. How long have you lived there? 
A. My wife and I moved up there eight years ago. We raised our kids down in Ballston Lake and they went to Shenendehowa, so we’ve been in the Saratoga County area for over 35 years.      

Q. How many children do you have? 
A. I have two grown children and two little granddaughters.

Q. What are your holiday plans? 
A. We’re going to try and spend a ton of time with family and friends.

Q. What is your favorite holiday movie?
A. Wow, Home Alone. When my kids were younger, they loved it. I think I’ve probably seen it a
million times.
