Ruben Sanchez
(7/10/52 - 6/29/13)

Former Head Coach Ruben SanchezThe staff and players of the New York Sharks lost one of their family members this past Saturday night. Ruben Sanchez was our Head Coach for the 2004 season and under his leadership, took us all the way to the National Championship game. We knew him as a kind person, always quick to smile, and passionate about the game of football. Despite his illness, he continued to support us by attending several of our home games this past season. Our lives are richer for having known him. We extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
