Former Westport teacher and coach Tom Beauvais will be inducted into the New York State Basketball Hall of Fame March 18.
continued “To be honest with you, the biggest thing is seeing these players go on in life and be successful and give back something to their communities – because of what it meant to them to be an athlete – and a great number of them all throughout the country that are doing this,” he said.
After giving so much to the young people of his own community, Beauvais, who still lives in Westport, says he’s now focused on spending as much time with his family as he can. When he spoke with the Valley News, he had just returned from coaching his grandson’s hockey practice in Saranac Lake.
“Right now I’m not coaching any basketball at all,” he said. “I’m just spending a lot of time with my grandkids – and enjoying it immensely.”
