We are saddened by the tragic loss of a member of our football family last week. Below, is an email from Michael McNulty's father, EJ, about upcoming arrangements. Let's help support this family, and celebrate Michael's life.
Our family has been wrapped in the love of and support of family, friends, and the Minnetonka community since the tragic loss of our son, Michael McNulty. With that love, and the guiding light of Michael, we invite you to Michael’s celebration of life on Tuesday, July 13th at 11 am at Westwood Community Church in Chanhassen.
Additionally, we would love to have anyone who attends from one of the sports teams wear their jerseys and sit together. We will have a coordinator at the celebration who will help assemble the individual groups and usher them in as a team, together. Of course, parents are welcome to sit with their kids, to comfort each other and experience the celebration as families.
In lieu of flowers or gifts, we would prefer support go to the Michael McNulty Memorial Fund. This fund has been created to ensure Michael’s light shines on all of us. In the same way that Michael led with kindness and empathy, the fund exists to help those that deserve it most and it will provide scholarships to support our local academic and athletic communities.

The Minnetonka Football Community lost a dear friend in the passing of long-time coach John Mattox on Sunday, September 13th.
Coach Mattox coached the Varsity Offensive Line at MHS for 15 years. "Mad Dog" loved our great game and loved the players who played it even more. He was a colorful man who made all who played for him feel special. He was one of those people who, if you met, you would never forget!
Coach Mattox began coaching in 1947 with Wells Memorial Settlement House where he won the City League Football Championship - while still attending West High School. He attended Junior College in Santa Ana, California, where he lettered in basketball. Mattox served as President and Regional Director for the Minnetonka Athletic Association and was the Head Coach of the Excelsior Jets when they won six MAA Championships. His coaching career took him to St. Louis Park, Blake, and Kennedy before he began coaching for the Skippers. Coach Mattox was credited with inventing the Nerf football!
