Rick and I are both alumni of the school. Rick is curently doing some sports photography for the college. We both went to college with the head football coach whose son is a friend of our sons. I also have two (second) cousins that are vying for playing positions on the football team. I grew up watching up these cousin's dads, my first cousins playing for this team. My mom has also worked at the school for over 30 years now. Our ties to this school are endless. And now, the greatest irony to me is that so many of my neighbors have a tie to the school as well. So we gather our kids and blankets and head to the hill on the end of the field. Our kids all play together and we gather and cheer on our team.
I enjoyed the use of Rick's camera and while realizing I wasn't feeling well, made the most out of a sunny afternoon and some good football! Go Cobbers!
