(This was Dennis’ HS Homecoming Crown that JJ received for this season to put on. This is all I can say about it. The man was King, an ardent supporter not just of his own athletes but of the entire community too.)

We’re fortunate to have met an individual who left an impression of treating every person as one of them. He showed kindness, believed in the hard work of others and loved his family so much. The community we live in lost one of the top! Let’s do our best to emulate Camp in how we treat each other!
