So I was at my daughter's track regional a few weeks ago and saw Coach Wilcher whose daughter was also competing. We were both walking alone and I said hello. He instantly assumed an expression of pure dread. I told him we'd run against each other once in High School and he had taught me a little about what "fast" meant (as many know he was an All American sprinter/hurdler as well as being a tailback for Detroit Central and M). His demeanor changed entirely and we chatted for a minute about our daughters. My guess is he's so used to being accosted by strangers over football and recruiting that he automatically tenses up when he hears his name in public. Anyway, not such a cool story bra, but thought I'd share.
Also, for a bit of straight up bragging, my kid did make the state meet exceeding all preseason expections! (proud papa here)
