Comments:

I graduated from Springfield College in 1970, and from University of Oregon in 1971. I taught Physical Education and Health for 36 years in Milton, MA. I also coached Varsity Soccer (and other sports) for 21 years. My last 16 years at MHS, I was the Director of Athletics. Since retiring in 2007, I have thoroughly enjoyed babysitting our two twin grandsons a few days each week.
We have been fortunate enough to travel to Ireland and Amsterdam since retiring, although we spend a lot of great times down Martha's Vineyard at our gingerbread college, and visiting good friends in Florida. I played in the adult soccer leagues until I was 50, then bum knees and a burning love for fishing changed my focus.

School Story:

I still cherish the good times I had at Braintree HS, both in athletics and academics. Fortunately I also have stayed very friendly with a lot of our classmates, and get to hang out with them on a very regular basis. Many sports memories, soccer, Tech Tourney, and tennis. Also, many nights skim boarding and surfing down Nantasket, Horseneck and the National Sea Shore. I have always wished I could relive one day in High School, although I'm not sure which one I'd pick.

Thanks to Brad Hobbs’ tireless efforts the Gerry Bradley bench has been placed at his memorial on Partridge Hill Drive. Thank you to our class for your donations, and a special thank you to Brad for his diligence. Come up and check it out.
