Mark gets lots of support and encouragement from his Mom and me (Rob).

A pre-game family gathering seemed to give Mark extra energy

My Brother Chris was also Mark's coach.


Mark appreciated our Mom and Dad and all their sacrifices to help him

I especially liked wrestling matches.  I got to hang out with my Dad.   I also got to cheer and yell as much as I wanted.
