Wow, I don't know if very many Utah high school coaches would have taken him back. We've lost a few very talented athletes to drugs, and they are finished as far as high school sports go. Our baseball coach will not put a boy on his team who even hangs around kids who are making really bad choices. This is quite a story! Best wishes to Nick and his team.

Great story. I had the joy of working around coach Miner when I student taught at Orem HS, you couldn't ask for a better mentor of young men than coach Miner. Class Act, great guy, fun and accepting. Looks like this young man has the right fit in a coach. good luck Nick and good luck to coach Miner and his ball club
