In just a few short days, you embark on your 27th year season as a collegiate football videographer and I just wanted to let you know how proud I am of you and how proud I am to be on this crazy, amazing journey with you. Your dedication to and passion for the game shines through in everything you do and your rapport with your student employees has made you an incredible father-figure and mentor to them over the years. I know it can sometimes feel like an invisible job, but I also know you’re happier behind the scenes doing what you can to help make UMass football a success. Through all the staff changes, tech kerfluffles, long practices and (literal) sleepless nights, you’ve given the teams you’ve worked for everything you have, and any university would be damned lucky to have someone like you at the helm. I hope this season is your best one yet!
