Coach Bellai is one of those rare coaches that doesn't care if you are a star athlete or the rest. He just wants to make physical activity fun and worth doing. He won't complain if you give it all you have.
My son could not wait to have Coach Bellai for a teacher...his last class was with him on Thursday....an entire community is mourning the loss of this great Coach.....Always smiling and laughing...and my son said he was glad that Coach Bellai was going to be his Coach for his Senior year.....
Best teacher I've every had.
Truly one of the best coaches and teachers. He was an inspiration to my boys and to all who had the pleasure to know him. He will be greatly missed. This is a devastating loss to the Saratoga community.
An inspiration and role model for us all. He always seemed genuinely happy to see you wherever you might cross paths.
He was a great man and will be sorely missed by so very many.
Coach Bellai was a good man. I will really miss him and his legitimate love for his profession. Toga lost a good one.
Anthony Bellai was an amazing teacher, mentor, coach and friend. He saw the best in everyone and helped students to realize their potential. He helped bring students together, encouraging everyone to be a team player. Coach Bellai will be greatly missed by the Saratoga Springs School Community.
I only began to have Bellai as my coach this year, but he will forever leave a lasting impact in my life. No matter what he always a huge smile and the kind of personality that just makes everything better. He was always kidding around with his guys or just genuinely happy for no reason. RIP Coach Bellai, you were a one of a kind person with a heart of gold. You will always be remembered and severely missed 💔
Bellai coached my daughter in softball various years through out her softball career at Saratoga. He was also her gym teacher a couple of years.. He was an amazing person!! Saratoga has lost another piece of GOLD with his loss.
Coach Bellai is the very heart and soul of Saratoga High. I love you Bellai, you are everything I wish to be. You have my heart, respect, and devotion forever.
Great person, great gym coach! Although I never had bellai I always had gym when he was coaching the guys. He always smiling, laughing and cracking jokes! I wish I had got to know him better. But I do know he will be missed very much by everyone who knew him or crossed paths with him. SSHS will not be the same with out you. Rest easy coach!👼
If I grow up to be 1/10th of the man Bellai was, I'd be doing a lot right.
Coach Bellai taught me how to wrestle in 8th grade, it was a tough time in my life and he beleived in me when i didnt believe in myself, He taught me how to be a man among men, he gave me the courage to go out there and keep fighting till the last breath. Coach Bellai, the impact you had on my life was monumental, you brought out the best in everyone. i can still hear your words of inspiration echoing in my head. I love you buddy, you will be missed.
Coach, I am going to miss you so much. You have been taken from this world way too soon. Just yesterday we were joking around about how me and Vanyo were never gonna win a gym football game and also making fun of each other's cars. You had an impact on every student that has walked through our halls. You never saw the worst in people. You always were so kind to everyone and didn't care what background they were. I love you so much from the bottom of my heart. You will forever be remembered. RIP
Bellai is the coolest dude. He has so much wisdom to offer and likes everyone he meets. He is understanding and yet expects the best from you. He will bring out the best in you as a person and is always happy. Bellai is the man
What more can you say about this man but amazing. I hope one day he gets to read this because dude is one of my favorite people in that school. Nobody else treats everyone like equals quite like him. I love this dude and sure will miss him -Yakush
