I am a proud coach of the Bellefonte Wizards. I am also their counselor in the group home and apartments where they live. I have been their counselor for 14 years and their basketball coach for 5 years. I love this population and feel Blessed to serve them. I am originally from Seravezza, Italy and was lucky enough to be educated in America. I became a US Citizen at age 18 and to this day I am living my American Dream. I chose working with intellectual disable people because I believe they to should live their dreams. The Special Olympics Virginia is doing just that for my group which is why we are known by our neighbors as the happy bunch. I have been married to my wife Nancy Mathews for over 41 years, and she is my greatest supporter.
