  2. In 1967 I played offensive and defensive tackle for Bishop Walsh High Schoo in Cumberland, Maryland. We were 7-0 when Coach Wootten brought his Stags to town and we lost 14-13 for our only loss of the season. I had the chance to play college football as result of my performance against DeMatha, specifically playing across from Bruce Mitchell. I coached high school and small college football for a number of years and I occasionally watch the DeMatha film. Aubrey Nash was an incredible athlete and every timeI watch that film he jumps off the screen. I travel back to my hometown each March to attend the Alhambra Catholic Invitational Basketball Tournament. As I sit watching the games I often think of the Morgan Wootten-coached teams and I always think about Bruce Mitchell and Aubrey Nash.
    I’m proud to have competed so well against those men and I wish all the best to the Nash family.
