LeMar's win NFL doubles championship


Tonawanda News — LeMar said John-Michael and Andrew have a good chance to win at sectionals, but that it will take consistency to pull it off. He said they have to win on the first day and keep playing well and find a way to carry that momentum into Wednesday for the semifinals and finals.

After four years coaching John-Michael and three watching Andrew develop, the reality of what the boys have accomplished is starting to sink in for LeMar.

"I'm real happy for them. They don't always say a lot, but today they were both happy and were excited to say they played well," he said. "This has been the first week, maybe ever, where I've started to look back and it starts to be more difficult. 

"The other day was (John-Michael's) last match on the home court and today was the last time they compete against NFL players. It's a great accomplishment and when you're the coach and dad, this is the first time you sit back and say, 'Wow.' "
