Mr. Cole also states, “The floor looks great! The scorers table was redone by one of our alumni, Miguel Perez, Jr. (Class of 1997), and it looks brand new. It has a modern look and I feel that that kids are going to love it.” The new floor design was also created by Mr. Cole, Mr. Perez, and director of school admissions and Scanlan alumni, Chris Florentino (Class of 2009).

Mr. Cole is working on several projects for the fall and spring sports as well in an effort to boost the department as a whole. "It is very exciting for the teams that are going to play here, our students, and the fans. I am really looking forward to it,” Cole stated.
