You didn't go to school with Trevor or you wouldn't think he was a great guy. Trust me potsdam takes good care of its athletes by letting them do whatever they want and they get to treat people anyway they want with no repercussions. You can call me names and put me down but I lived the non-sports life in potsdam and its no fun

I have lived "the sports life" in Potsdam... Never got any special treatment... I'm assuming you are one of the ppl that wishes they could have played sports and since you couldn't, you looked at athletes with distain and thought they had it so much better than you.

But. I do think that Craig Conroy and Trevor Scott deserve some recognition like other towns do for their athletes

How about a big sign that says 'Athletes are born somewhere', would that help?

Villages and Towns should honor people who make a significant positive impact on that Village or Town... Have these guys given back to Potsdam? The two of them could afford to fund the Potsdam Recreation Program without missing a beat. When celebrities and successful people become a benefactor to the town they grey up in, then they should be honored.
