Coach Tom - a huge supporter of youth sports.

Was him last fall coaching some kids at MA High School, we were all excited with the news then that maybe it was going to work out for him.

A huge loss to the community.

I knew Tom when I went to CSM a great man and the world will miss him. There are not many people like him left in athletics.
