Rochester Mourns the Loss of a Coaching Icon

Doug May was the most influential coach in my life here in Rochester.  Whenever an important decision came up in my soccer life, I thought to myself, "What would Coach May do?"  I often called him to ask his opinion on coaching philosophies, personnel, and just pick his expansive brain.  I've had some wonderful coaches in my life over the years, and although I didn't have the opportunity to work with Coach May as closely as I would have liked, he was always ready and willing to support me, my efforts and give me enlightened advice on soccer and on life.
