BRIGANTINE–On Saturday, former Brigantine Rams Jayvee Coach Angelo Coia was honored in a very quiet and special way. There was no ceremony nor hoopla as the Rams met the Buena Braves. In fact, neither the fans nor members of the team even knew this honor was taking place on the field. However, the spirit of No. 46 was present as two players wore his number in his memory.

Before, we get on with the story let’s recall who Angelo Coia was and why he was a very special person.
