O’CONNELL’S DEATH LEAVES VOID IN PEARL RIVER Written by Bob Seligman, Originally published December 3, 1983

his wheelchair at Pearl River’s wrestling matches. He invited your curiosity as to why someone with muscular dystrophy would be at all the home matches. Michael O’Connell’s story fell into the category of human interest. In journalistic jargon, it was referred to as an AOT— Something that can be written and printed Any Old Time. Unfortunately, time has a way of running out before it’s supposed to. Muscular Dystrophy won its battle against Michael O’Connell’s body last Sunday night. With his death, at age 20, a part of Pearl River sports went with him. “I think there will be a void in Pearl River,” said Pirate athletic directory Tom Doherty. “we always made mention of him as our No. 1 fan. He came to all the activities. He was a very important part of Pearl River athletics.” Michael O’Connell was driven by love and loyalty to his family. The oldest Jill O’Connell play girls soccer and Kelly O’Connell played softball. When Jim O’Connell was named the Most Outstanding Wrestler at last year’s PSAL tournament, he shared the glow of glory with Michael. “He always wanted me to do good. He was my main cheerleader.” said Jim O’Connell. loyalty,” said Pearl River wrestling coach Hayes Yorks. “He had a strong sense of family ties.” Michael was always there. He has his sport at the wrestling matches. He was behind the sidelines at Pearl River’s away football game and in the stands for the home encounters. A special ramp had been built just for him. Pearl River also put a special parking spot for the handicapped next to its gymnasium just for Michael. Obviously, Michael O’Connell was someone who was genuinely liked by Pearl River’s athletes. Pity is not an applicable noun.

Michael O’Connell (center) poses at his spot between the bleachers in Pearl River’s gymnasium with his mother, Loretta (left) and his brother, Jim. Sitting on the wheelchair is Jim O’Connell’s trophy for being named the Most Outstanding Wrestler in last year’s county tournament.

M

ichael O’Connell’s Story was one that could have been written a while ago.

“They treated Michael not as an invalid but as a human being,” said Yorks. “They felt the loyalty of someone who was there all the time.” Michael wasn’t there just because of his brothers or sisters. He was a genuine, Knowledgeable sports fan, one who rooted for all of New York’s professional teams. If he hadn’t been struck down by Muscular Dystrophy in his youth, he would have wanted to be a basketball player. “It was very important for him to come out and cheer for Pearl River,” said Doherty. And it was just as important in its own way for Pearl River’s athletes to have Michael cheering for them. “They had the feeling that this kid was there and not being able to do what they could do and they learned to appreciate what they were doing,” said Yorks. “He made a difference here when the kids would see him,” said Doherty. “They’d say that they had problems but then they’d look over at him.” Pearl River rewarded Michael O’Connell’s love. He was given a varsity letter, with pins put on for football and wrestling. Then, last winter, Pearl River’s wrestlers chipped in to buy him a varsity jacket.

The Jacket arrived after the school year and hung in a closet in York’s home. On Oct. 22 in a pregame ceremony before the Little Brown Jug football game between Pearl River and Nanuet, Michael received the jacket. Last Wednesday, Michael O’Connell was buried in that jacket. “That’s what my mother wanted,” said Jim O’Connell. “She thought that’s what he deserved because he always went to Pearl River games.” Michael O’Connell may be gone, but he won’t be forgotten. Some sort of memorial will be created. A suggestion to name the Pearl River Christmas Wrestling Tournament after him was enthusiastically greeted by Doherty and Yorks. so much of the void Michael O’Connell’s death leaves behind. His physical presence—or absence of it—particularly at wrestling matches, will be felt for quite a while. “That spot between the bleachers is going to look awful vacant,” said Yorks.

WRESTLING PARENTS

Special thank you to the parents and friends who supported Pirate Wrestling, we are family!

36


MICHAEL O’CONNELL WRESTLING TOURNAMENT

The Wrestling Parent By Dr. Bill Welker

They feel all the pain that their child must go through, At home, when he diets, they wish it could stop, Yet know he must do it to stay at the top. Excuses for losing they will not endure, The coach, he will show you the best way to move, Keep working in practice if you want to improve."

As their boy must compete with no one else there, Whatever the outcome - mom cheers with deep pride, While dad -- you will notice - stands right by his side.

Their boy, he has trained, with all of his might, Having dreams of becoming a champion tonight.

A mother and father -- supportive and kind,

Now if you are searching for people who care,
