With two of his players in attendance, Mrs. Merryman, Mr. Kyle, Mrs. Vilardo, and Mr. Hansen paid tribute and thanked him for his time, talent, and dedication to the Lourdes football and overall athletic programs.

During his years here Coach Walsh led the Lourdes football program to three Section One titles and a memorable state championship appearance. In her remarks, Mrs. Merryman praised Coach, “You are one of the best high school football coaches but you are even a better man. The character of the man you are has changed lives so God certainly works through you, Brian Walsh.”

May God Bless you, Coach!  Lourdes will miss you and we wish you all the best in your next chapter!
