    I will always remember Tommy Sisk for his sense of humor and leadership. He was a fierce competitor on the football field as our senior year co-captain. I still remember the game when Tommy broke the face guard on his helmet in a smack-down tackle. Most appropriately, Tommy was selected as an “All Mid- State Honorable Mention”.
    Off the field, Tommy was a true gentleman and friend. He never met a stranger; always made people smile with his sense of humor; and treated everyone with dignity and respect.
    Tommy made the world a better place through his faith and love for his family.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Becky and the entire Sisk family.

    Farewell to #72 !
