Mr Badar taught us to believe in ourselves, how to be men, he was the best coach I've ever had the pleasure of competing for, he was also known as the Dean of all MHSAA Track & Field coaches throughout the state of Michigan, he was also a great inspiration for me and my brother when we first started going to Northern. Just going out to compete week end and week out for him and the school was always special. Our parents knew we were in good hands with him on our road trips as well as at home. The man knew how to help change lives for the better. it certainly was a pleasure to have known such a great man and father figure. The Hart Family offers our condolences to the Badar family and know that you are in our prayers. Donald Hart c/o "77"
