Father of offensive coach Douglas Klopacz.
Who's your favorite Colt? It would have to be my son Douglas, the offensive coach. What has been your favorite Colt moment? I thought today's catch by Joe Presti was really, really something. It was outrageous! What's your favorite concession food? The famous American hot dog! What's the best part of a game that gets the least attention? The special teams. They are very important in this game and I don't think a lot of people realize what they do. How long have you been attending games? Oh for many, many years. Craziest thing you've ever done as a fan? I've stood in the pouring rain for hours and hours. Know a fan who is deserving of being profiled in "Fan of the Week?" Send your nominations to email@example.com.

A look back at the week's top stories.
Welcome back to Week in Review! With the tropical storm from Hurricane Irene and the first week of the high school football season, we took a couple weeks off. On Monday, the Kinnelon girls volleyball team beat Chatham after Colt Caroline Laton finished the game with 17 kills, 10 digs, two blocks and an ace-a team best.

Presti said he thought of the idea to collect non-perishable food, cleaning products and personal hygiene products to benefit the local pantries after attending another school's football game last …
