Cumberland County High School is mourning the loss of one of its assistant football coaches. Sources say Coach Rocky Gora collapsed on a golf course and later passed away in the hospital.
Here is the message from the Jets Football page:
As most know Jets Football lost a beloved family member today. Coach Rock was a wonderful coach, friend and mentor to many young men. He shared his love and knowledge of the game and made them better people and players. He will be greatly missed. Please say an extra prayer for his family, our coaches, players and entire football family. We are a family and most don’t understand until they are there themselves. We love you Coach Rocky
