Congratulations to both the 2004 Weedsport Varsity Football Team, and David James, as they become the latest inductees into Weedsport’s Sports Hall of Fame.
The 2004 team has a lot of accomplishments to look back on. They finished the season with a perfect 13-0 record, and were 7-0 in league play. Along with being undefeated, the Warriors were OHSL Class D West Football Champions, Class D Section III Champions, and took home the Class D State Championship, defeating Tuckahoe to take that title. The 2004 Weedsport football team also finished the year ranked #1 in the NYS polls, and has the only state team title in school history.
Led by coach Cal Mosher, the members of the team included: Brad Bach, Brandon Bach, Brandon Magill, Jeff Williams, Mike Coolbaugh, Hiral Patidar, Adam Sweet, John Mietz, Adam Quigley, Kerry Green, Mike Case, Mike Maltese, Brandon Winslow, Steve Flynn, Tony Tabone, Jim Scarbrough, Bob Bradtke, Tyler Nevidomsky, Steve Whitcomb, Justin Forbes, and Ed Rooker.
Weedsport is currently working on collecting contact information for each player for our upcoming awards ceremony. If you were a member of the team, please email our Communications Specialist, Eliza Lennon.
David James is also being recognized as a new inductee into the Sports Hall of Fame. David James was an exceptionally dedicated employee during his years at Weedsport Jr-Sr High School, and went above and beyond to help our athletic department. During his career, David coached football, baseball and girls’ basketball. Moreover, David spent countless hours volunteering as our school’s “medical staff” for athletic events.
Years before athletic trainers came along, David was present on the sidelines for football, boys and girls basketball, and field hockey games. He would travel to away games, at his own expense, to be sure our kids were looked after.
There is no limit to the number of athletes who benefitted from his immediate care during a game, as well as from his follow-up after the injury. David’s concern and compassion was always evident, and deeply appreciated by athletes and parents alike.
