I am proud to be selected alongside these Valley Forge Inductees. I am a firm believer that this award is not about one person, it takes a lot of people behind the scenes to make this happen. I would like to thank my brothers and sisters for their support during a very difficult time. I would also like to thank Coach Fritzsche and the coaching staff who did a tremendous job. Lastly, for my teammates for their hard work and dedication and the lasting memories that were created.
Mike and his wife, Marilyn, currently in Painesville.
