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.

Rats. Just cancelled a five year anniversary trip back to my favorite place on earth...the Pipeline on the North Shore of Oahu. Oh well, I can stare at the pictures we took the first time...kind of a virtual vacation I guess. Stay well everyone.

Just came across this photo on Timehop from six years ago of a chance meet-up in Amsterdam with old neighborhood friend Bill Nicoll (BHSClass of 67). I hadn’t seen Bill in almost 45 years when he recognized me sitting on a train. Life is indeed funny sometimes! Bill and his wife live in NH; he is a guest member on this site.
