Sab was the best role model as a teacher, coach and person anyone could have ever had. He truly exemplified what excellence in teaching and coaching looks like. His warmth came through his humor, smile, daily conversations, and his concern and empathy for others. His passion for life, his devotion to Judy and his children were exemplary. He meant so much to his former students, players, and colleagues. We all loved him a lot.
