Port Washington lost a true "Hero" when Danny Biro passed away in early October of this year. He touched so many students and athletes during his 50 years of teaching and coaching.
I met Danny in the old Junior High (Main Street School) and we could not wait until we got to the high school to participate in the many sports they offered. Danny had an older brother, Joe, who played football and both Danny and I knew that football was to be his favorite sport. In high school Danny was the quarterback and leader of the 1946 and 1947 Championship teams. He also played basketball and baseball and was a member of the sports Hall of Fame.
After Danny graduated from high school, he went to Alfred University, but left after his freshman year. He transferred to Denver and was drafted into the Marines. After his release from the Marines, he went back to Denver to get his degree with his wife, Marge. He was hired by Dr. James Hall after graduation to teach and coach in the Port Washington School system.
Danny taught in the Port Washington High School for 50 years and set many records as a football coach.
I am sure Danny will be missed by the many who knew him and there is something I know for sure, I will never forget him. Again, Port has lost a true "Hero."
