“Coach Ingram has been a mentor to me and the rest of the staff. He’s probably one of the greatest Wing-T minds out there, from a coaching perspective. He’s relentless worker and someone who is so passionate about the players, the staff, the program and the school. I was fortunate to spend the last 16 years with him. Paul’s a great coach and his love for the game is second to none, It’s been a great privilege to have been coached by him and then to be giving the opportunity to coach with him. He is a man of high integrity, that’s what stands out about him to me.
"He leaves the program that is well-established and will keep going. Most importantly, however, is the legacy that he will leave behind. He's always been there for players whenever they needed him. It doesn't matter if you're an all-state player or a scout team player. He wanted you to succeed in football and in life. I think the kids know that he cares a lot about football, but he cares more about them. He did not want his players to accept losing and he always had great preparation to win. He taught his teams to strive to win because that's what life is.
"There were a lot of great kids and a lot of great players that came through Gloucester and I think he has a lot great memories to look back on. I think his biggest legacy is that he had a positive impact on the players that came through the program not just football-wise but in life. I know that what Paul taught about Gloucester Fishermen football will help them the rest of their lives.
"His record of success as our head football coach speaks for itself. Most important is the positive impact he has had on the hundreds of student athletes he has mentored and coached over the years. Their lives have been forever changed through their association with Coach Ingram.”
