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.
