My all-time favorite local coach: My dad (Chuck Gojmerac) coaches me in baseball, football, basketball and soccer. A close second would be Rummy (Mike Rumbaugh), the men’s volleyball coach at Saint Francis.

If I have a claim to fame as a fan, it would be: As a 6-year-old, I was part of the ball crew for Pitt Johnstown vs. West Chester in volleyball. I’ve also been a ball chaser for PIAA baseball games the past two years.

If I were the boss of local sports, the one rule I would enforce would be: Give any kid who wants to play a sport the chance to do so.
