Tribute to Shiloh Baptiste – Gone but not forgotten.

Shiloh BaptisteShiloh was one of Coach Brown’s first students. He was an excellent archer, competed in several local and national tournaments and took home more than a few trophies. Shiloh attended New York University Poly and majored in Mechanical Engineering. Shiloh developed aplastic anemia and although the condition often made him tired, he was strong in spirit and mind; always good-natured, hopeful and optimistic.  In April of 2012, Shiloh passed away.  Shiloh is loved and missed by his parents, brother, team mates, Coach Brown and all who had the good fortune to know him. Be at peace.
