Moved to PG last summer to help out my mom. My son Dugan is attending Western Oregon University on a baseball scholarship. Still single.
I am no longer teaching, Thank god! My son Dugan is still playing baseball. He has been playing on a college prep and pro scout team for the last couple of years. Check out Clashbaseball.com if you want to see his picture and stats. He has been playing all over the US and his team placed 6th this past summer in the pRemier Senior World Series in New Orleans. He is now a Senior and is being recruited by several division I schools here in AZ and Oregon and Texas, several division II and III schools as well as a number of CCs. So I am braging because I'm (expletive deleted - remember that term) proud of him.
I am once again single and plan to stay that way. I've been a single dad for the last 14 years and I am a little apprehensive about what I will do after Dugan is gone. Probably go back to the beach and continue surfing which is still my passion.
First entry - about 2002
I am presently a high school science teacher and head volleyball coach at Estrella Foothills High School in Goodyear Arizona. I have custdody of my 13 year old son named Dugan. The two of us spend much of our spare time surfing over on the coast in So Cal and sailing our Hobie Cat. I never did give up the surf scene.
Dugan is quite the baseball player and has been playing year around baseball for about 6 years so the rest of my time is taken up following his team around. Except during the fall when Im following my VB team around. It would take much too long to tell you what I've been doing since I got out of High school so it will suffice to say that I moved around a lot and did a lot very interesting things. Life has been pretty good to me so far.
I live with a great lady named Kelli who has 2 daughters Sydney,13 and Alix,15. We hope to move back to the beach in the next couple of years where my son and I can keep one foot in the water all the time.
Anyway, howdy to everyone and see ya around
