Fenwick's Legend 'Butch' Rossi Passes Away
Tuesday, September 13, 2005 10:33:02 AM - Monroe Ohio

He was a hero to anyone who played sports in Fenwick and a legend to the community.

In 1995 he was inducted into the Ohio High School Coaches Hall of Fame.

Here is a quote from Butch at his induction: "I always asked the Fenwick players to work and play hard, to be dedicated to being the best person they could be, both on and off the floor. I have a firm belief that the teaching of fundamentals is the most important aspect of coaching." John 'Butch' Rossi
