Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of a community legend, friend, and mentor to so many of us, Coach John Toale. On and off the field, for decades, he contributed to and impacted the lives of so many young men and families by volunteering his time and expertise to numerous church, charitable, and recreational endeavors. Peter texted me earlier and asked that I inform his football family, “they were his blood,” he said. And your dad was ours, too, Peter. Let’s all be there for Maryanne and his family like Coach was there for us. Heaven just got a damn good man and lineman! RIP Coach! #SaintDonBosco
