I'll never forget my first day of football practice at St C. We had no field (except the playground full of goat heads) so we ran to Kidd Springs for practice. On the first kickoff, I was on the kicking team and was going full bore at the ball carrier. I just knew I was going to impress the coaches with my tackle. Then, Danny took me completely off my feet with a block. I never saw him coming, That block ended my football career.
