Chardon had numerous players in their 40s, while Mayfield was a bit younger. I declined to play in the game […]

In 10 years working here at The Daily Record, I can truly say that parents of high school athletes never cease to amaze me. As a young man walking out into the real world at 18, I was told that the retail industry was a tough world in which to make my way. Admittedly, now […]
