I caught up with him and his 18 year old grandson Dalen Erickson the night of game 6 between Miami Heat and Boston Celtics. (Dalen had asked, fittingly, if we could move up our appointment so he could watch the basketball game on TV).
Dalen brought a basketball and a football as props. As you will read in this news story HERE, Dalen is an extremely talented multi-sport athlete, and his photo – the Utah Jazz shirt and football combo – reflects that.
Another time, when we beat Dugway, there was a snowstorm, a blizzard. It was kind of fun; it was like taking two steps forward for every one step back. There was snow all over and you couldn’t see a thing. Right at the end of the game, I just went downfield and turned a quickie out, then caught the ball and ran for a touchdown.
