For those who thoughtthey saw Santa running around Hamilton Friday afternoon, it was nonother than Steinert art teacher/wrestling & football coach Doug “Cooperazi” Cooper. Seen here getting ready to grab a late lunch at Killarney’s, CooperClaus was en route to spreading his artistic holiday joy throughout the township (Photo by Rich Fisher).
Rich Fisher has been around the Hamilton Township sports scene for so long that he actually got Rich Giallella’s autograph when Giallella was still a player! Proud product of Hamilton YMCA and Lou Gehrig baseball leagues and former teammate of Jim Maher on a very average Barton & Cooney rec basketball team, Fish graduated from Nottingham Junior High and Steinert High school and has covered township sports since 1980. His goal in life is to convince Maria Prato that Jersey tomatoes are at least 100 times better than California tomatoes.
