Mr. Matsinger was my long term 5th grade subsitute teacher at Holy Cross in 2008. During the short time he was at Holy Cross he made one of the biggest impacts not on just me, but my class itself. Holy Cross was running a fundraisor for the Make-A-Wish foundation, and the class that raised the most money, got to go on a picnic during school. 7:30 every morning Mr. Matsinger would be screaming at his desk "We're making wishes baby!" as we all turned in our money. Of course our class won when we had someone that excited leading us. I will never forget his face when it was announced that we won. He was definitely more excited about the picnic than anyone else in the room. Somethings you never forget from your younger days, and thats definitely one ill never forget. Rest in peace to a good guy.

Words can't describe the feeling of loss at this. Scott (aka Og) was a great kid and grew to become a great role model for kids. We will always remember him with a smile on our face and never forget how great of a presence he was. We will miss you buddy!

We were sorry to hear of Scott's passing. He was always such a nice kid, and a valuable player for Albright. Our son John #63 played by his side on offense. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
