4. Did you have a sports hero? Who was he or she and what was their sport?

I have never really been a sports person, so no one was really a sports hero to me, at least not anything above the local level.  David and I went to school with some terrific football players. Dinky, Jerome, Mitch, and a host of others were the stars in our world.

I tried to find photos of all three of the guys mentioned above, but was only able to find a photo of Dinky. He was an outstanding athlete and was a starter all four years of high school.
