Three words can describe this coach "the real deal"....dedicated to his family, friends, teams he coached, and all others under his watch as an Athletic Director...a real class act who will be missed. This guy knew the formula to win was to believe in yourself and your team.

As a Malden Catholic alum and graduate (class of 2003), I give my deepest condolences. My four years at MC were the four best years of my life. I'd give anything to go back and re-live them all over again!

Chris was a coach at Northfield Mt. Hermon when I was there and everyone admired him immensely.
