Back from Ithaca

We left Ithaca at 6 this morning to get back in time for me to talk about "Remember When?" to potential clients at a conference this afternoon. Now that I'm back in town and have Internet access again I'll see if I can find a few things we missed while I was goine.

Here's one: a story about incoming freshman speedster Kirby Schoenthaler, honored for his academic and athletic accomplishments by the National Footbal Foundation.

From the story:
During his three-and-a-half-years as a starter he accumulated approximately 10,000 yards of offense, including passing, running and receiving.

It is the latter category in which he will be making his mark at Dartmouth.

Considering Schoenthaler carved out his niche as the fastest sprinter the past two years at Bartlesville High — and one of the best in the school history — he brings breakaway speed potential to the position.

In fact, he may be penciled in the top-six receiver rotation as a freshman.
And this ...
“I feel like every kid dreams of being a NFL player,” he explained. “At this point, I don’t feel that’s a realistic goal. That’s one reason I choose Dartmouth.”
