Coach Slater contributed to a tradition and a culture of excellence, not only for the football program but for every discipline on the Kearny campus. It didn't matter what the sport, ROTC, music, Junior Achievement, and academics, if you were a Kearny Komet you not only were something while in school, you became an outstanding member of society! Today, we have members of the Kearny Nation that are successful, contributing members of society, which is a result of a collaborative effort by teachers, administrators, community and parents were inspired by a winning football program. Thanks Coach, your influence is appreciated. RIP. Class of 1974!
