Mr. Rozelle was my gym teach at Oakmont and Coopertown (1957-1960). This past weekend I was visiting my brother and telling him how much I had been thinking about Mr. Rozelle lately and how he had impacted my life. He stands out as the most prominent person from my grade school years. He was so open hearted and caring and took time to know us individually. I still remember things he said to me. I felt the need to contact him. My brother did the search and found this site. I am sorry I was too late to tell him in person.
