I know Pat Boland and he is a fine man and referee. He has been active in sports most of his life and is a great friend to many. I wish him well and thank God that someone with medical knowledge about heart attacks was at the game and acted quickly. Those are skills that more people should have.

High school coaches are required to get CPR certification every year. I had to do it once at a volleyball tournament during club season -- I guess that one of our parents was shocked that our team won that particular match. I was happy to have had the training. I'm glad Mr. Boland got through this and commend the ADs for their quick decision. I hope Mr. Boland is back on the court soon.
