Got to meet that young man about 5 years later at work. Great guy. Asked him about how is a guy with your last name make it to Mercer County. Parents jobs. But he told me, dad was from Leipsic, and mom was from Kalida. He said the best part is he could walk the halls of Marion Local Schools and date any girl, unlike the rest of the Boys. But once he stepped in Putnam County he was related to a lot of the County. I was like "yep with those 2 names". Wish he still worked where I do. We had great conversations.I remember that - he was hurting terribly and did not return to the game for quite a while.
But he's married now and has a family - so apparently all the critical components still function properly.
