Losing Coach Adhir feels like losing a limb or the ground upon which we as a football community have been standing. He has given so much to our boys, school, parents and none of that will ever be wasted or forgotten. Coach Adhir will go down in history as one of the most admired and respected people I know. Thanks to him for making us all stronger and may the entire team, school and community continue to build on that strength. To Coach Adhir thank you for giving so much and for touching and changing so many lives. May you also go from strength to strength knowing the deep gratitude that follows you everywhere you go.

Losing Coach Adhir is painful, but we wish him well and thank him for his incredible contribution to so many young athletes. MA bears football is way more than just 'a sport', there is so much heart and talent on this team, words fail to describe the dynamic. Coach Adhir will no doubt shine bright at what ever he pursues, that is certain. Adhir is the real deal: smart AF, charismatic, generous and wise, a true leader and all-around superior stud of a man. Teens can sniff out a phony a mile away and there is nothing but tremendous respect for Coach Adhir. These are some big shoes to fill, with a lot of young athletes anxious to hear who will try. Lets Go Bears!!!
