The sudden loss of a great man Mark Connolly
Posted Friday, December 30, 2011 by Ed Dalton
When i first arrived at Trinity there was not much positive talk about the football program. At the "Meet the New Coach Night "held by the booster club I met Mark Connolly, and that was a blessing for me. Mark was a no nonsense honest father of a very good rising junior player in the program Matt. Mark told me the facts straight about the program and what needed to be done. When I began to make changes his support was never waivering and strong, and with the help of great juniors like Matt we were back in the WPIAL Playoffs Matt's senior year. I was blessed to have known Mark, his wife, and both of his sons Matt and Ryan. The true measure I always say of a Dad is his sons, and Mark gets straight A's.
My deepest sympathy goes out out to the family on the passing of Mark much to young. Anyone that Mark knew was touched forever...God Bless
