Sal Marchese was nominated by Vincent Nestore, a colleague.
"I’ve had the opportunity to work with Sal for over 25 years," said Nestore. "Sal’s love and dedication over that period of time has been second to none. His personal involvement with students and student’s athletes is amazing. He’s a friend, a mentor, a coach, a father figure for a lot of kids. The total package. So it’s an honor to nominate Sal for this award."
