“I learned a lot. Coach Walsh showed me how to play defense when I was a freshman; I was getting blown by all the time (before that),” Beck said. “I had to go head-to-head with Eric Martin my sophomore year. He’d kill me, so I’ve grown a lot.”
Danvers dedicated its 2013-14 season to beloved math teacher Colleen Ritzer, whose life was taken tragically last October.
“She always made everybody feel warm and welcomed,” noted Walsh. “I think more than the winning or the losing, we dedicated the season to her as a person. Hopefully our kids become great people just like her.”
