FROM THE DESK OF
Bally Total Fitness – Area V.P.
|I would like to personally
thank the Executive Board of the MSTCA for an incredible 2006 season! Under the leadership of Frank Mooney, Lou
Tozzi, Jim Hoar, John Carroll, and the rest of the board; the MSTCA is blazing
a trail for associations around the sport to follow! As a young athlete from North Attleboro in the 1970's I can
recall looking up to the programs at Seekonk, North Quincy, and Falmouth! Clearly the impact that Mr. Mooney, Mr.
Tozzi, and Mr. Carroll have made transcends decades and is felt across the
sport! These men are GIANTS in our
sport and I am honored to have worked with them so closely this past year! Thank you GENTLEMEN!! I would also like to thank Mr. Frank Kelley! His inspiration, dedication, and
perseverance have made us all better people!
The Frank Kelley Adversity Award is truly what our sport is all about! The human spirit and the fight! THANK YOU MR. KELLEY for being an ICON and
LEGEND to all of us!! Lastly, I would
like to express my sincere gratitude to Dwight
Estey! Five years ago, Coach Estey
inspired me to get back to the "GRASSROOTS" of the sport that I grew
to love as a youth! He opened the door
at North Attleboro and gave me the opportunity to work with and around the
great people and tradition of North Attleboro Track and Field! It also made me realize that every town and
every school across our state has a tradition and that the people in and around
the community are the leaders in society!
That on any given day in the fall, winter, or spring, you could simply
visit a track or a practice and find coaches and people who are truly making a
difference! That each team has a TRADITION and GREAT LEADERSHIP! Leadership that can make a difference and
can be seen at any track meet or competition which displays sportsmanship,
teamwork, positive mentoring, hard work, dedication and perseverance! Those ideals are taught by the coaches and
are taught in each community across this state! THANK YOU COACHES FOR MA
KING A DIFFERENCE!! You are impacting lives each and every day and it is greatly appreciated! Have a great summer and GOD BLESS!!
