Thank you, coach
Having refereed football, basketball, track and field and soccer at the local, state, regional, national and some international level, I have had contact with hundreds if not thousands of coaches at every level.
With the retirement of Don Fosselman as head boys soccer coach at Parkersburg High School, we are losing one of the most respected, hardworking and above all dedicated and honest coaches I have been associated with in 30 years of officiating.
Coach Fosselman has contributed to athletics in a manner a lot of coaches dream about: dedication, respect and honesty are but three of the traits Coach Fosselman exhibits not only on the turf, but in the classroom and off the field as well.
Don, I will miss your presence on the field and your contributions to the game. The thing I will miss the most is your friendship on the field.
