    Congratulations on a great career Coach Farley. But how can the writer not include NFL player Terry Ray as one of the greatest athletes to come out of Ellison?

    I can never thank Coach Farley enough for the things I learned from him in the classroom and watching the way he treated everyone in the hallway. If ever anyone earned a lemonade in the shade, it has been him. - Dave, '83
