How did your experience as a Golden Knight shape you?
“The friendship and camaraderie developed during my Saint Rose experience have yet to be duplicated in my very diverse and long sporting career. I left a large campus for a small, unique experience and never regretted it. Saint Rose taught me to appreciate the joy and peace derived from helping others. I am a better person and coach because of my wonderful years as a Golden Knight.”
