"For the 3rd consecutive season I have had the pleasure of coaching a group of wonderful senior student-athletes who graduated from High School on time. (Which unfortunately in this time and educational climate is not a given.) These four young men, not only graduated, but represented their school and themselves in superior fashion both in school and in the classroom. All four have been accepted into college for the fall of 2002. Futhermore, Chris Thompson graduated as the class salutatorian (# 2 ranked student) and earned an academic scholarship top LIU and George Jefferson, who had earned a full NCAA basketball scholarship to St. Peter's College, graduated the class Valedictorian (# 1 ranked student). All four of these young men will be missed. It is my hopes that their fine examples serve for our future players."
