Dear Coach John Kaye,
The Matawan Football Alumni Foundation and all former Huskies offer you our profound thanks and gratitude. It is rare in life, especially in this modern and at times hurried and harried world, to connect with someone as dedicated and committed as you have been, not only to our Football Program but, perhaps more importantly, to the development and growth of the young men who played for you. Your 25 years of diligence and devotion, first as an assistant coach and then as a head coach, stand out as a shining example of what it means to both sacrifice and commit one’s life to a profession. During your 25 years you have seen a championship, several playoff appearances and many winning seasons. While those wins and successes are emblematic of your character and drive to succeed, your influence and inspiration goes far beyond what you achieved on the field. You not only provided high school football with young men dedicated to winning and success, you provided the world with so much more. Your selflessness, generosity and zeal for both excellence and accomplishment left an indelible mark on all of those you coached, mentored and taught both on and off the field. Your retirement is but another milestone in a life lived well and while we are sad to see you go, we are also imminently grateful for your ever-enduring influence and guidance. We wish you and your family the very best in this next exciting step in your life and bid you farewell with all the goodness and graciousness you have so staunchly instilled in us.
On behalf of all Huskies, it is my pleasure to represent you as the President of the Matawan Football Alumni Foundation. Our program has a rich history of successes on the field and, now, through this excellent foundation, we will share our off-field successes. It is my mission to expand our reach to all football alumni, to make our foundation a professional resource for all Huskies, and to honor all those who made this program the great program it is. Please spread the word with us and encourage all our fellow Huskies to become foundation members.
President, Matawan Football Alumni Foundation
