No replacing Nick

I am so saddened by the death of Nick Alcorta. He has been my son’s coach in basketball and baseball over the years. He always had encouraging words for him. He never talked down to the children. You never saw him anywhere without his own two boys. It was always so fun to watch him referee a game of basketball or baseball. He always added a little flair to the game. He also took the time to write encouraging letters to his players. I don’t think this valley will ever find a replacement for Nick.

Nick and Debbie are amazing people. Even with the loss of both their jobs, they both kept involved in the valley. I will miss Nick so much. I pray he is in the heavens looking down on us to see what the score is.
