After a respectable college career in hockey and basketball and degrees from Acadia and Dalhousie, this Halifax native took his first coaching job at Acadia in 1958 as head basketball coach. His team did not burn up the league and he realized he had a lot to learn about this demanding profession. He headed to Boston to earn his Masters in Physical Education and then returned to Halifax to coach basketball and football at St. Pats High School. He returned to his high school alma matter in 1960 and his remarkable career began. In 34 years at Queen Elizabeth High School, his teams won more than 800 games in football and mens and womens basketball. There were eight metro high school football championships and seven provincial titles. His basketball teams won nine provincial championships and in 1964 won the Canadian championship.
