DOLPHINS HONOR CONNECTICUT SHOOTING VICTIM
The entire nation has been dealing with the after effects of last week’s tragic elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, and when the Dolphins were informed that one of the victims was an avid Dolphins fan it didn’t take long for them to act.
Mary Sherlach was the school psychologist at Sandy Hook Elementary School for 20 years and was one year away from retirement. She and the school principal, Dawn Hochsprung, were the first two people to encounter the gunman and try to stop them. Both were shot and killed.
Sherlach’s son-in-law, Eric Schwartz, revealed to the Lawrenceville (New Jersey) Patch that Sherlach really loved the Dolphins and knowing that he was a Buffalo Bills fan she would give him a hard time. The Dolphins host the Bills on Sunday and funeral services for Sherlach were today and the team sent flowers to her family.
“It just came to our attention that one of the victims up there was an avid Dolphins fan so we just thought it would be the right thing to do,” Dolphins Head Coach Joe Philbin said.

## Things were a little old school during this morning’s practice with the music selection during stretching and warm-ups, starting with “Get Down On It,” by Kool & The Gang from 1981. That was followed by the 1994 rap hit “Juicy,” by Notorius B.I.G., and closing things out was Bob Marley’s “One Drop,” from 1979.
