NAGA Comments: 

Neil is a consummate competitor. He is awesome both on and off the mats. Neil is a true gentleman who is always willing to share advice and his thoughts to help better NAGA.

We hope to see Neil on the mats a bunch more now that he has retired from the police force. But you can surely see him in the Executive division at pretty much every tournament in the Northeast.
