"Hey Ramblers. What I remember the most about teaching and coaching at Loyola is the sense of family. In the all too short seven years I spent there I remember feeling that all the students, all the parents, all of my colleagues truly appreciated what we were doing. There was a sense of 'Loyola as a unified mission'. It wasn't the students, the coaches and the science teachers and the everybody else all doing their own thing. It was all about everyone being determined to be the best school we could be. I became both a better science teacher and a better coach in my years at LA because of this unified approach. I have many fond memories and many friendships to this day because of this. I loved my Ramblers and I'll always remember those days with fondness.
What I remember the second most vividly is actually getting red carded and tossed out of a game at Lake Forest. To this day I'm not sure what I did - I was always so quiet - but I was able to coach the rest of the game from one of the dad's cars and by using some early iteration of a mobile phone as I recall. But that's just a brief moment which I'm sure my guys will always cherish!"
