2006 Inductees

Gary Lovik - holds the distinction of being the first former player to become President of MYFA. In addition, this long-time coach has held many positions within MYFA; most notably he was the league’s Treasurer for more years than he would like to admit. With money and resources in very short supply, Gary fought for fiscal responsibility within the league to insure the future preservation of the program while insuring that the league fees remained low and affordable to all. The budget battles are legendary in the MYFA annals yet despite the often unpopular position he held, the league today is growing and thriving in large, to practices and procedures he developed many years ago. Always willing to lend a hand with any endeavor, Gary was one of a handful of people who devoted their time and talents to MYFA 365-days a year. As a coach and before individual playing time was mandated, he was an ardent believer in player participation and cultivating a team environment that made learning fun. Long before the word became in vogue like it is used today, Gary believed that he was a teacher first and foremost, and that the values and life lessons learned in organized sports, far transcended the final score of any game on Sunday afternoon. .

Myron Rodee - is one of those special people that you just enjoy being around. Always willing to help, Myron held a variety of positions within the league with his most notable contributions coming by way of putting together the League’s Souvenir Program. The task in and of itself does not seem too daunting but the man-hours behind the fund-raising publication are just staggering. As with all MYFA volunteers, Myron was a tireless worker behind the scenes and without fanfare, kudos or even an occasional thank you, he did it for the betterment of the program but more important, to the participants themselves. As a former coach, a Myron Rodee team was always very competitive, very prepared and always had fun. His calm and insightful demeanor not only benefited the boys who lives he help touch and mold, but also extended to the rest of the leagues coaches as Myron became one of the most respected mentors in the program. Though many years later, you can still scan the fields on any given Sunday and readily find some of his influences still apparent.
