Paul - together with the entire senior WAW Class of 1950 were the heroes of sports and sportsmanship for all of us entering WAW in 1949/50. I attended class with that class of 1950 graduates and was in awe of them. And I still am. Arguably Paul and the sports teams of William A. Wirt can be counted in that group as perhaps the best ever graduating from our alma mater. "Our boys will no longer shine down that line tonight" but look up into the midnight sky and see a new star shining down all of us who knew and grew from our relationships with Paul Hook. Bless them, and us all.
