2011 Project 365 - MyLeroyPhotography

Today Leroy played Goshen in the first round of the playoffs. Sammie Coates pitched a no-hitter. I think the final score was 20-0. That's a pretty big deal. I know that we had a no hitter a couple of years ago, but I wasn't there. Sammie is a fine young man who will be graduating next month and has committed to play football at Auburn University next year as a wide receiver. We're so blessed to live in a small community with a unit school that allows us to get to know and love everyone. A unit school goes from kindergarten though grade 12. The little kids look up to the older ones as heros, and the big kids always seem to fill those shoes. I watched during the game as a little freckle-faced girl came running to the dugout to talk to Sammie. As always, he was engaging and encouraging as she talked about getting ready to play her own softball game.
