I KNOW A LITTLE STORY, IT AIN'T VERY LONG,
I had the pleasure of being being a volunteer transportation engineer ( shuttle driver) for the just completed FBU camp held at Permian this past week end. It turned out to be one of the greatest thrills in this old man's life.
My first load to pick up at the airport included Alonzo Highsmith and Chandler Richards. The next load, Leonard Humphries, Dale Hellestrate, Zerick Rollins and Charlie Collins and Bill Bradley. Finally the last load, Ricky Hundley and Quintin Smith When Quintin Smith got in he noticed my Permian Hat and started to grin. I ask about his grin and he said, We played you one time. I ask where he played and he said Houston. I told him we probably beat him, then I ask Houston what? Yates was his reply. He turned out to be one of my favorites.
Others who coached were Rich Bartel, Brandon Harris, Rex Norris,Paul Bull, Glen Smith, John Davis, Gene Dahlquist.
Needless to say I spent a lot of time talking Permian History and listening to their great stories. Bill Bradley is a hoot, but a smart one.
TOODLE-UM, TOODLE-UM, NOW IT"S ALL GONE!
