As many of you know, Coach Doulos has left Wallkill to return to teach at his Long Island Alma Mater.
Coach Doulos has asked to post a final goodbye message that he wishes to share with all of the people who has made his time at Wallkill so great:
To the players, parents, staff and the rest of Panther nation,
I wanted to take this opportunity to say good bye and thank everyone for seven memorable years of being a member the of Panther football family. For everyone who does not know, I am moving down to Long Island to be closer with my family and loved ones and will be teaching at my Alma Mater. In time I hope to become part of the staff down there but I really can’t imagine it will be as great as it was being a part of the one here.
I would first like to thank each and every player that I had the pleasure of coaching. Each team that I coached brought something unique to the game and I only hope that you had as much fun as I did. I have the fondest memories of each team and season and I will never forget any of them. I would next like to thank the parents and fans of Wallkill football. I have had nothing but your full support no matter our record and that definitely made coaching much more enjoyable year after year. Lastly, I would like to thank the Wallkill Football staff (past and present) and Athletic Department. These are the most dedicated and hardest working coaches I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I only wish that I had the opportunity to have played for them.
I as move on, I know that Wallkill football will get stronger and better and though I will no longer be a part of the staff, I will always consider myself a member of Panther football. I wish everyone the best of luck and I will definitely be up in the Fall to route the Panthers on.
I would like to thank everyone once again for seven very memorable years.
Coach Richard Doulos
