I am a product of "Coach" Deladrier's large and lasting footprints on this earth. He afforded me the opportunity to join a varsity college athletic team having no experience in fencing at all. Beyond the skill of fencing, he taught me the value of patience, perseverance, and self-confidence. Like many I am very grateful to have been under his tutelage as a Midshipman '77. May he rest peacefully after a job well done!
