Bear River softball coach Calvin Bingham is grateful for the support of region rival Grantsville, whose head coach, Heidi Taylor, and players reached out to Bingham and his players this winter when Bingham was battling cancer.
“This, to me, is what high school sports is about. It says something about the teacher and the coach that she is. What she’s teaching those girls goes far beyond softball. It’s showing them about life and that, when we go on the field, we compete to the best of our abilities. But afterward, you realize, we’re all human beings and we have the same desires and fears.”
Calvin Bingham, Bear River HS softball coach
