Ah, Minico. I was a Spartan, but we were atrocious. In the years from 1988-90, we only won one game (3-0 v. Poky my sophomore Homecoming game), so it was more than refreshing to follow Skylar and his teammates as they finally brought dignity and respectability to Rupert. I also share the change-of-heart thing with Skylar: I was a thrower on the BYU track team as a post-mission freshman, but I just could not regain my competitive fire. Priorities had changed, and I just didn't care how far that little metal ball or that little rubber disc flew, any longer. Consequently, I chose to pass the torch at the end of the season. Best of luck to you, Skylar. You've made the right choice.

Impressive individual. Indeed, he made the right decision for him. I also like what appears to be a SD cap on in the picture. Do we have an Idaho farm boy Padres fan? Best of luck, Skylar.
