Honoring Greg LaValla

Greg LaValla is a much-loved PAL football coach.

He’s also involved in a tough battle with cancer.

Some of his young players made a video to let him know how much he means to them, and how much they miss him on the field.

They’ll also honor him this Friday night (September 12). At halftime of Staples’ opening game of the 2014 football season, Greg will be added to the distinguished list of names on the Wreckers’ Wall of Fame.

His players will be there, wearing their game uniforms. They’ll sit together.

They’ll be tight and together. Just like all the other teams Greg has coached, so well and for so long.

  2. Greg;

    We played PAL Jr. Wreckers in 1975 and went 8-0 with coaches Vin Georgetti and Don Nazzaro. You were the anchor, and team captain, at Middle Line Backer, of an undefeated and unstoppable defense.

    Thanks to your memorable efforts running the defense and playing line backer, I had the honor of being on a championship team in 1975.

    Thank for your contributions to Westport PAL.

    Get Well –
