Brent III Takes it to the Pocatello Indians

From the Small World File:

The varsity head coach for Pocatello High School is the son in-law of Bishop Fred Claridge from the Lincoln Ward in Tacoma Washington. I was able to visit with the coach and his sweet wife (Fred's daughter and Krysten's sister) before the game and had a very nice visit. He is a very good person and runs a great program. I let him know that Brent III and I were home teachers to the Claridge family for many years. It was great to talk with them about Fred and Marjorie (hero's of mine). My thanks goes to Krysten Butterfield for letting me know about her brother in-law Coach.

That is a great shot of Brent! Famous guy you have on your hands there.
My sister called to tell me that she ran into you. Do you know she had no clue you had a kid on the team! I LOL at her. Now I will have to send her a link and say see its that guy towering over all of your guys.
