Gregory began playing football in second grade with the SICOH football team and played every year through eighth grade. He was captain of his SHS freshmen football team. Gregory’s favorite part of the day was early morning. He loved walking to the beach to watch the sunrise. He just loved being outside enjoying nature. Gregory was an avid reader who enjoyed sharing his thoughts and opinion on whatever the hot topic of the day was. He enjoyed a spirited debate with anyone willing to share an opposing opinion to his. Gregory regularly worked out at Baystate Athletic Club under Mark’s supervision. He took physical fitness and nutrition very seriously.
He enjoyed fishing, kayaking, shooting, and walks on the beach. He was happiest when walking his two and half year old German Shepherd “Phionna”.
