To Whom It May Concern,

     I am writing this letter in support of Milford Academy and Mr. William Chaplick.

     I believe that both the educational institution and the person Bill Chaplick will bring life and excitement to your community.

     As a graduate of The University of Connecticut I have been familiar with Milford Academy for the past 25 years. In fact, many of my college teammates were graduates of Milford and went on to have successful careers in College as students and athletes. Milford Acadmey has enhanced the educational experience for thousands of young men since its inception. It has made college a reality for young men who need an extra year in the classroom before moving on to college.

     Bill Chaplick is a fine man with a heart as big as the state of New York. The only thing he cares about is making sure his students have a positive experience in the classroom and on the football field.

     As the Head Coach of the University of Iowa we have had the opportunity to recruit there over the years. Our experience has always been positive and beneficial in every regard. Fred Russell, our starting running back is a graduate of Milford Academy. Bill Chaplick still stays in touch with Fred (4 years later) on a weekly basis.

     Fred would describe Coach Chaplick as a teacher, coach, mentor, and friend. While Fred's year at Milford was a challenge he would be the first to tell you that he would never have had the chance to play in the Orange Bowl if it wasn't for Milford Academy and Bill Chaplick.

     Education is all about helping kids reach their full potential. Your community with the addition of Milford Academy will have a chance to impact many young lives in a positive way. I whole-heartedly recommend that you support Bill Chaplick and Milford Academy and welcome them to your community with open arms.
