Randel McCoy, an assistant coach at Cold Spring Harbor HS, was diagnosed in February 2018 with ALS and currently works as a teacher's aide and also coaches football besides wrestling. With his positive disposition, Randel continues to live his life to his maximum potential which is a testament to his courage. Randel's charm, wit, and vibrant nature is profoundly infectious and has made the many people around him supremely happy. No matter how bad a situation, Randel is always one to provide relief and levity. We all truly appreciate and grow from his knowledge and unrelenting compassion.

To assist Randel with the financial burden associated with fighting this disease, also know as, Lou Gehrig's disease, two fund raises have been establised. One has been set up by Cold Spring Harbor wrestler Ray Costa and allows the donor to pledge an amount that will be billed by the ALS Association at the conclusion of the wrestling season. It's link is: http://raymond-costa.getvizible.com/
The second is a GoFundMe site, set up by Dominick Sair, whose link is:

Hopefully you can find it in your heart to help Randel.
