BERGENFIELD — Dan Glover, who died last month at age 24 and whose liver was donated to his former wrestling coach, was honored posthumously at Bergenfield High School on Monday.

“We are proud and humbled to honor Danny Glover, who personifies all possible definitions of school spirit, citizenship, character and honor,” Superintendent Michael Kuchar said, before a small assembled audience. “Many of us talk of ‘giving back’ and ‘passing it on,’ and there is no doubt that this star athlete-turned-coach did just that in the natural realm of living.”
