Coach Pat Stark is honored with a Legacy Fundraiser at the Univeristy of Rochester for his work with the Athletics Hall of Fame.
Each year, I’ve been honored to document the annual Sports Hall of Fame awards dinner for the University of Rochester and Coach Pat Stark is the man with the plan. He is the nicest and most genuine person you shall ever meet and he remembers everyone. Many know Coach Pat Stark as a star quarterback for Syracuse University.
This Legacy Fundraiser for the university’s Athletics Hall of Fame was a last minute schedule addition to an already busy year, however I could not pass up the chance to photograph this legend being honored. Coach Stark is never one to be in the spotlight, so the event was a wonderful evening of familiar faces, big smiles and great stories.
After working with him for the last 8 years, we have gotten to know each other very well and have a wonderful working relationship. I know exactly what he wants and he is open and accommodating to my recommendations for capturing better quality images.
The University of Rochester Athletic Hall of Fame was created in 1992 to honor former athletes, coaches, and friends for outstanding achievement. Their stories stand as testimony to the rich history that athletics play in the education of Rochester’s students and of their pursuit of excellence both on and off the field.
