Here is a young man whom I was fortunate to coach a few years back in Springford with in the Springford Rec League Basketball. This is great news for Andrew Scanlan. Good things do happen for those that work hard such as Andrew Scalan has. I wish Andrew all the best and wit both his academics and well football at Northwestern University. John Janda
