Lycoming Football - The end of the road!!

I bid farewell to my cherished role as a Lycoming Football photographer and fan, the years of memories from 1996 to 2021 unfolds in my mind. Each home and away game has been a chapter in an extraordinary story, though I carry the weight of missing the season after Ricky Lannetti's passing, along with other games due to health reasons. Ricky's dynamic play left an indelible mark on my heart, and his loss, coupled with the ensuing playoff drama, was deeply affecting.

My journey has been enriched by incredible moments on the field - spectacular catches, formidable blocks, electrifying runs, decisive tackles, and jubilant celebrations. But beyond the thrill of the game, it's the bonds formed with players and their families that I treasure most. These connections have added a layer of warmth and humanity to my experience.

I'm profoundly grateful to Lycoming College for the opportunity it provided post-Air Force, allowing me to pursue an accounting degree. This journey wouldn't have been the same without the patience and understanding of the professors who've endured my varying struggles over the years.

As I write this, my heart swells with gratitude for everyone who's supported and encouraged me. The memories of shared triumphs, challenges, and camaraderie will forever hold a special place in my heart.

As the new seasons dawns, my cheer remains steadfast - "Go Lyco!" May each season bring us closer to the dream of a Conference Championship. Remember, the journey’s end is inevitable, but the spirit with which you play - pouring your hearts into every game and striving for excellence - is what truly matters.

As I step away from the sideline, I carry with me the legacy of these years, the friendships, and the unbridled passion for the game. You all have been a blessing in my life. God bless each of you. Here's to cherishing the past and embracing the future with hope and courage.
