Memorial Message for a Beloved Coach at Worthington High, Ohio

After the OSCC swim meet at Worthington today, my DIL was driving.

Had my phone out and was able to capture part of this message created with plastic cups stuck into the chain link fence.

When I googled, I found out it was Coach Stephen Gussler, Jr. who taught and coached at the high school, whose name was on the fence – the one who will be loved forever by his baseball players and students at Worthington High School.

Here is a video about him and the lives he touched.  There’s a Guss Strong Community Page on FB,too.

Forever  love Guss

Maybe we’ll be down in Worthington again so I can capture the whole message in the fence.

 

 

 


Swim Coach Clay Saves the Day

After the Dive Championships at Worthington Hills Club in Ohio, we were waiting around for the results and awards presentation.  Jack McG (5) threw his favorite Woody (Toy Story) t-shirt up into the air.

A gust of wind caught the shirt’s billow and sailed it up onto the Pool Clubhouse roof.  Uh-oh.

Jack’s face would have made a good photograph but I’m not that fast.  He didn’t expect the shirt to disappear on the roof.

This kind man, who happens to be a coach of the Penguins of New Albany, came over and pulled over a stool AND a big golf umbrella, climbed up onto the stool and retrieved the favorite shirt, snagged it and flew it down to Jack.  What a nice guy.

By that time I had the camera to my eye, shot this image and then asked if it would be okay to blog him and he graciously agreed.  Thanks,  Coach. Good sportsmanlike conduct, eh?
