Michael was inducted into the Hall of Fame that he actually created in 2006. His work organizing this event involved a lot of dedication and countless hours researching school history. His hope was to recognize great individuals from the past, re-connect people with the school and friends, and provide role models for current students to look up to. While employed at Mount Morris, Michael served as a coach, teacher, athletic director, and principal over a 19-year career. He coached boys JV and modified soccer, basketball, and baseball for 11 years before moving into administrative roles.

His dedication made a long lasting impact on the Physical Education and Athletics Department. He also designed the entire fitness room that is currently in use at school today. Michael, a 1988 MMCS graduate, was a three-sport athlete in soccer, basketball, and baseball. He was the starting sweeper and a LCAA Division II All-Star in soccer on the number one seeded soccer team in 1987. He was the starting center on the number two seeded basketball team that went to the sectional finals during the 1987-1988 season. He was also named the MVP of the 1987 varsity baseball team. After his 19-year career at Mount Morris, he went on to become the Director of Physical Education, Health and Athletics at Churchville-Chili Central School in July of 2012.
