A Deserved Tribute

Yesterday evening, back home in the hills of northern Washington County, Pennsylvania, the football field at my alma mater, Fort Cherry High School, was quite deservedly renamed "Jim Garry Stadium."

Mr. Garry, who died last year at the age of 80, was one of the longest-serving high school football coaches in the history of Western Pennsylvania (if not the longest-serving). He guided the Rangers for 43 years.

The Observer-Reporter has video of the occasion.

The photo of Mr. Garry above is from the Post-Gazette.
