The Indian Valley baseball team sends condolences to the family of Robert Goss or as we called him "Pistol Pete." Every single individual on our varsity baseball team knew Pete for his great personality and his loyal support of Indian Valley athletics. We can't remember playing a game without seeing "Pistol's" face in the crowd. He will be greatly missed by our team this year. May God be with you!
