CHATHAM, NJ - It was fitting that one of the gifts Dr. Gregory Mulford received was a Chatham football helmet, a keepsake for the 25 years he spent on the sideline at Cougar football games.

Dr. Mulford spent some of his most memorable moments serving as the team doctor for Chatham athletic events on the field with the football team. He was honored at halftime of the Chatham boys basketball game on Saturday night.

"The first trip to Giants Stadium when (the football team) lost to Lodi in the championship game was one great experience and when they made it to the finals again (last year)," Mulford said. "The road to those games was incredible. But it really wasn't about the wins and losses, it was about the coaches and how they cared about the kids. They always looked at them as people and helped them learn the things that sports teaches you."

Mulford is the chairman of rehab medicine at Morristown Medical Center and is involved with Atlantic Medical Group of Atlantic Health System. All five of his children played sports at Chatham, including his only son, Mike, who played on the football team. 

"It's been great to be a part of Chatham athletics, it's just been incredible," he said. "My five kids all went through the Chatham school system and they all played sports and benefited from the experiences, too."
