I always think of the parents when

guys report to Fayetteville for football or basketball. Talking primarily the parents of the HS kids.

It’s usually the first time for them to leave the nest.

I remember Darnell Ford, the father of Derrian, saying how hard it would be on him when Derrian left for the Hill. Just thinking about him.


My great niece left this week for Tulsa. I texted her about the day her mom did the same. Tough for the parents. Been there with my niece and both daughters.
