Commentary:

Life lessons were learned by Mike on the playing fields of Lincoln High School. He honed his leadership skills, developed lifelong friendships, hardened his desire to win and accepted pain as part of the process. In a word, Mike was tough! He led by example. He demanded the best from himself and his teammates. Win or lose, he left it all on the field. One could not ask for more. (Provided by younger brother Bob Walsh).
