PITTSBURGH -- The Central Catholic High School Community is praying for the well-being and swift recovery of Damar Hamlin, ’16 (Buffalo Bills), after a scary situation on the field against the Bengals in Cincinnati on Monday. Hamlin, a highly respected young man, has been an integral part of our Catholic Lasallian Community and regularly returns to Central to speak with participants of our football camps.
“Our prayers are with Damar and his family during this difficult time,” said Central Catholic Principal Brother Michael Andrejko, FSC, ’86. “May the Lord be with him and hold him in the palm of his hand.”
Recently retired Head Football Coach Terry Totten, ’76, had the following to say about his former player, “He is a great athlete and twice as great as a person. He is an essential part of the community at Central Catholic.”
His work in the community via his charitable foundation is unparalleled, and we continually applaud his willingness to give back in a positive way. He is a great athlete and a great Christian gentleman who is a man for others.
