For me, in baseball the big name was Travis Lee. I graduated with Jed Hansen. We also had Jared Sandberg come out of here. For football we have Jerramy Stevens and Jonathan Stewart. Our pro wrestler: The Brian Kendrick. By the way, the last three were all in classes I taught as a substitute.

One memorable delivery I made was to an up and coming community called DeLand, Florida where there was a lot of construction. I remember it to this day because I came across a couple of kids about 8 or 9 years old playing ball. Being a baseball fan I struck up a conversation with the boys. To this day I remember one boy telling me that the other boy, Chipper, was better than anyone else in school and was going to be a major league player someday. I always remembered that because the name "Chipper" stuck in my mind because it was an unusual name. When I realized that Chipper Jones was from DeLand, Florida, I had to wonder if I met him that day and I still wonder.
I coached Mike Bordick for one game in 1979. I coached Senior Little League in Hampden, Maine and my team won the league and I got to co-coach the all-star team and Mike Bordick was on that all-star team.
Players from my hometown (or real close to it) - Danny Coombs and Matt Kinney.
