We played them on Saturday. I had the pleasure to speak to him for about 2 hours before the game and then a little after. Prayers to his family and the Seamen organization here in Milan. This is a great shock to everyone in the IFL.

R. I. P.

Mark 16: 16..."16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned."

Acts 2: 38...."38And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

Acts 22: 16...."16And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name."

I Peter 3: 21...."21Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,"

The above Scripture is from the English Standard Version

Hate to hear about his passing. He was a fiery and well respected man.

I really liked Joe Avezzano. Very good coach for the Cowboys.

Mark 11:23 New King James Version (NKJV)
23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

RIP coach Avezzano. The man who should have gotten the Cowboys coaching job instead of Dave Campo.
Who is John Galt?
