Not sure what to say?

I am sorry to hear of Coach Durborow's passing. As a JCHS 1970 graduatae I knew him to be a "full in" coach. He was always concerned for the students education, safety and athletic passions.

You often read about what's wrong with football. Andy Durborow and many of those who coached and played under him are about what's right with football.

be sorely missed at our weekly lunches, but we will keep your seat open, if only in spirit..... Your Pal, Lefty

A man that everyone looked up to and respected.

Andy Durborow, One of the best. Always a smile and a happy word. It is my good fortune to have known Andy, his Mom & Dad and especially his brother Bill. I am thinking of you Bill.

Andy will be missed by all who.had the pleasure of knowing him as a teacher, coach, or mentor. Coaching against Andy was always a challenge because he knew the game inside and out. He was a gentleman on and off the field.
