It was the kind of question that reminded Loomis that coaching 8 to 10-year-old football isn’t as straight-forward as it might seem.

  • Caudill has a passion for riding

    Dalton Caudill, then 3 years old, rarely watched television, but he pulled up a chair while at grandma’s house and sat attentively watching the screen. His attention span, normally non-existent, wasn’t about to waver. He was fixated on watching motocross.

  • Getting a feel for science

    “Yucks!” blended with yucks as the students probed the stomach contents of the dogfish sharks they were dissecting.

    “I found a claw,” said one student, as he waved miniature pincers in the air.

    “I found a fish,” another student said as she held high a half-digested fish body.
