I graduated from Saks High in 1982. I was fortunate to have Coach Ed there my entire time. Always had a smile and I knew that there was someone that truly cared about me and everyone else. I didn´t realize it as much then, but the older I got, the more I looked back with a smile and knew I had a great role model in my life.
