    I met Buddy in Camp LeJeune when he was a junior in HS and I was in first grade. I would hang out at the high school football practices at the Junior high. Buddy played catch with me everyday, let me carry and wear his helmet and taught me a ton about sportsmanship etc. The team took me on the bus to away games for two years. I never forgot how I was treated and often thought of Buddy as I played and coached sports throughout my life. So sorry to hear of Buddy’s passing. RIP Buddy, you were a wonderful role model and mentor to me. I will always cherish those memories!
