Kevin O’Boyle – Class of 1992: “I was lucky enough to have him as both a coach and a father. He was always able to motivate our teams and get us to perform at a high level at the right times. I always recall that running track and cross country for him was fun. We worked extremely hard for him, but the hard work was always mixed in with joking and camaraderie. While one can say that track and cross country are largely individual sports, I believe that my dad made everyone feel part of the team. Regardless of one’s ability, we all celebrated the team’s success together.”
