Birt Slater was the most influential man I had as a teenager. I always looked forward to his 'words of wisdom' at the start of every football practice. To this day I still use 'The Slater Drill' to honor him when we do our favorite tackling drill. I will never miss you Birt, because you have been with me ever sense I met you on the KHS practice field in 1961. Class of '65

My first encounter with Coach Slater was at the Komet's spring ball when I was in the 9th grade. 49 years later I still reminisce about my time playing for coach and with the guys;not only learning about the game of football but life lessons that I shared with my two sons and kids that I coached-"when the coach stops yelling, that's when you should be concerned". Coach Slater was a big man and had a big heart. He will be missed by many. Our hearts and prayers are with his family.

Dear Slater family, Please accept our condolences. We are so sorry for the loss of Birt. He mean't so much to us and he touched the lives of countless people from his players, students and friends. Birt gave me the opportunity to get into coaching at Kearny. I was a wet behind the ears rookie, and he believed enough in me to hire me. 34 years later I was still at Kearny. He was a great friend and he taught me alot more than just football I thought the world of Birt and will deeply miss him.

Coach Slater, thank you for being such an inspiration for me to learn how to do the right things in life. By teaching me to work hard and give 100% no matter what, you instilled a work ethic I have had ever since you were put into my life. Winning a championship as a result of your leadership helped me to aspire to achieve a lot of things in my life that had nothing to do with sports. God Bless you and your family. I am forever grateful you were a part of my life.
