In our community, George is currently the President of Mount Ephraim Athletic Association, which serves over 350 youth in basketball, baseball and softball.

He has served as a long time coach, VP, and President. In baseball, he is the current Senior League Commissioner, District Senior League Coordinator, and long time coach. George and his team broke a 55 year championship drought when he won the District 14 Championship, and he has gone on to win 6 more, as well as its first Sectional Championship in 2018.
