  1. Mark! Enjoy your much-deserved retirement. Your commitment to your students, the resident students at South Campus and the staff was admirable. We will certainly miss you!

  2. Mark,

    As I look back at the history of athletic training in the Boston area, you are one of the icons. Your impact in sports medicine can easily stand along aside names such as Doc Linsky, Kassabian, Baynes and FitzGerald – each establishing a tremendous foundation for all of us to stand. The medical and sports medicine community owes you a great deal of gratitude as we have enjoyed your leadership, knowledge and friendship for a very long time. Enjoy your new path and always remember those that love and admire you.
