A physical education teacher for over thirty years, Phil dedicated his life to children and his community. The Red Hawks' Hall of Fame pitching coach was an ambassador for high school baseball and a man dedicated to worldwide children’s fitness. Phil also became internationally known for his work with PE4LIFE, a nonprofit organization that develops children’s fitness programs targeting childhood obesity. Throughout his career he shared his passion for childhood fitness with the young people’s lives that he touched every day and continues to inspire future educators through “Game Changer” by Ken Reed, a book dedicated to help children by improving physical education. Therefore his efforts will not go unnoticed and his legacy lives on.
Phil was an example of courage. He battled and fought cancer five times. On April 23, 2010 he lost the battle. Number 29, Phil’s number, was retired and presently continues to flutter with pride overlooking Naperville Central's varsity baseball field. He left behind, not only a family who loved and adored him, but an entire community that loved and adored him as well. He will always be Batting 4 A Cure.
