Saturday Morning Quarterback

Vanatta's spirit defied his age

About six weeks ago, the family and I went to a Lebanon restaurant for an after-church lunch.

Wilson Central basketball coach Troy Bond, wife Ginny and stepson Jon Rosshirt were also there. There was also an older gentleman in a light-colored suit whom I didn't recognize.

I sat down with my family with the Bond clan behind and across the aisle from me. A couple of moments later, I heard a familiar voice.

"That was Randy Vanatta," I thought. And then it hit me who the voice was coming from.
