Remembering a pair of legends

Kosmo wants to say sorry to those who had checked this blog over the past two weeks to find nothing, but your seer needed a little vacation from blogging and with little going on, figured it was as good of a time as any. But the K-Man is back and ready to pay tribute to a couple of coaching legends in the area, one who retired and one who was taken from us too soon. Of course, what can Kosmo say about legendary Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes football coach Mike Boyd? He can write a whole novel on who Boyd was the face of the not only the athletic program, but the school. Kosmo thought he might make it to 50 years as head coach, but Boyd instead decided to call it quits after 46 remarkable years that left him third on the state's all-time wins list. Boyd evidently took well to retirement life in Florida and decided that he could coach down there instead of coming back to Michigan for three months in the Fall to coach the Lakers. Kosmo says good for him and hopes Boyd makes the impact down in Florida that he did here. The other legend to pay tribute to is Denny Davis of Lake Orion, who sadly died of a heart attack on Sunday morning. Whether it was softball at the high school or other middle school sports, Davis was a fixture for so many kids and teams for over three decades at Lake Orion. He was a gracious man and a heck of coach and obviously will be sorely missed.
