In the deserved, “awww, you’re dope shane!” category, I have coached gang-risk youth in the east valley for 8 years, and a kid I have coached since he was 9, has now been invited to a real camp where he gets to work out with some of the best talent in southern california. Fighting for a starting linebacker job for Taft, a real football program, he called me and asked if I would join him.
Tears well, lump in throat occurs, and the POINT comes BING!!! BING!!! BINGIN my way.
This is a pic of us a few years back.
I’m a really lucky man.
