From 2011 - "I am so thankful to have such a great mentor and predecessor as Mr. Minkoff who built this excellent cross country tradition at Farmingdale State with a lot of hard work and knowledge. I will do my best to keep and continue his tradition. I care about my student-athletes and I will do everything for them to succeed in school, on the field and in life. My mission is to see how our student-athletes are dedicated, hard working, ambitious and are determined to build not only their skills but also their characters."
