Ten years ago, in my term as president of the Gridiron Club of Greater Boston, we honored Dick MacPherson as our Man of the Year.

We had a great turnout, with speakers from Dick’s native Old Town, Maine, and from many of the places where he’d played and coached. These included Springfield College,. Maine Maritime Academy, UMass, Syracuse, and the New England Patriots. We also raised $10,000 for Dick’s designated charities, the Joslin Diabetes Centers in Boston and Syracuse.
