He has been often quoted in major sports publications [7] [8], but rarely featured, due to his ethical demeanor. Most of all he has always been ready to help a younger Chiropractor get a start in sports chiropractic. Over the years he mentored such individuals as Drs. Stephen Press and Louis Leonardi.
