CHRIS GREEN IS ROCKY MOUNTAIN BOXING COACH OF THE YEAR 

By Chris Morris

Chris Green is all business in the corner of his boxers. They put together a secret code, instead of the numbers system for punches. “I need that Larry Holmes”, which one has to imagine has to do with the jab. Green is the type of trainer who ALWAYS has his fighters 100% in shape and ready to go. None of his fighters missed weight, he keeps them in check on every aspect from conditioning to diet. 

Green went 5-0, 4KOs in 2015 as Kirstie Simmons was 2-0, 1KO and Donald Cobb was 3-0, 3KOs. As a matter of fact, Green’s last loss in a corner came in 2012, impressive. 

To hear Green’s cornerwork, you can watch the video here Chris Green Cornering Simmons

Green is quietly putting together a great team fighting out of Glenn Goodson’s A-1 Boxing Gym in Aurora which includes manager Alan White. White has one of the strongest stables of fighters in Colorado which includes Simmons, Cobb and Manuel Lopez. Every good trainer has a ‘right hand man’ and Green’s is Rob Fierro, takes a full team. 

Chris Green is the RMB Coach of the Year

Former pro-athletes get patriotic 

12:34 PM, Jul 4, 2011 9NEWS COLORADO
updated 06:15 AM, Jul 5, 2011 

DENVER - Professional athletes showed their patriotism Monday morning in an attention-getting way.

Former sports athletes were out bright and early to celebrate America's Independence Day by waving flags at the Union Avenue bridge over Interstate 25. They caught the attention of drivers passing by with their patriotic display.

Former Nuggets player and now sports radio commentator Scott Hastings showed up along with MLB Hall of Famer Bob McCaslin and others.

This group of people - called the Flag Guys - gathers every major American holiday. The group was started by Denver resident Chris Tucker. Tucker works with the Professional Arena Soccer League. He gathers fellow athletes to show off their stars and stripes.

The written article above was changed deleting the following two sentences (in parenthesis) which appeared on the 9NEWS web site, as we are not the Pro Players Foundation and we were not promoting anything. The article originally read ("They were promoting the Pro Players Foundation. The non-profit organization is a group of professional athletes and community members that supports children.") We were just gathered to show our patriotism, nothing else. This inaccurate information was fabricated to bolster the news article by a 9NEWS staff writer. It was deleted from the article on Tuesday morning, but could not be edited from the video. The following text still appears in the video shown below. 
(These guys are from the Pro Players Foundation. The non-profit organization is a group of professional athletes and community members that support children. )

DEATH NOTICES & CONDOLENCES 

Pro Players Association would like to express our heartfelt condolences to the family of our Advisory Board Member Bob McCaslin on the passing of his beloved father William McCaslin, Sr., 89, of Englewood, CO., on Wednesday, May 11, 2016.

Pro Players Association would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of our member Dan Haggerty, aka Grizzly Adams who passed away earlier today, Friday, Jan 15, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Met my friend Dan, most of you knew him as Grizzly Adams, in May 2007. We remained friends since, kept in touch, then he even became a member of Pro Players Association. It was an honor to be able to call Dan my friend. I just wrote him get well wishes earlier this week, as he was battling cancer. My heart breaks to have to say, the cancer won. You're probably reuniting with all your animal friends of years past. We'll miss your big heart and awesome smiles down here. Griz rest easy and rest in peace.
