I have been a high school teacher and coach for the last 30 years, and have spent the last 11 years at Rockhurst High, where I served as the Theology Department Chair and Special Teams Coordinator for the varsity football program.
Matt and I have been close friends since high school. I was inspired and impressed with Matt’s work at the Westside C.A.N. center and how they were making a difference in the Kansas City Community. So when he pitched the idea of rehabbing the old St. Mary’s church and start a Police Athletic League, I was in. As a founding member along with Matt, Paul and Ace, I have helped raise money and grow our Board of Directors. One of my favorite events is our Annual Crawfish Boil held every spring.
