Makos Long Time and Only Head Coach Hangs Up the Clipboard

He graduated from Uniondale High School, NY and attended the State University of New York (Delhi).

The Makos will miss his leadership and steadfast demeanor. Rev. Gary Wilder, Team Owner, says, "Rock has been the anchor for the Makos from day one. It is bitter sweet to have him step away from the game he loves. We know that when one chapter closes, another chapter opens. I pray the best for him in all his future endeavors and he will forever be a Makos!"
Rev. Wilder did not let Coach Rock completely walk away from the team. Rock will remain as an Assistant with Team Recruiting; a role that is needed for future talent for the team. Godspeed Coach and a Makos Forever!!
