Lane High School

Jefferson School was really truly the first — thinking back on it, was really the first realization that there was a whole group of kids out there, a whole group of people out there that I had never had that much exposure to other than through sports.  Sports, to me, was always the great equalizer without even thinking about it.  You didn’t think about it.  The guy was either a football player or he wasn’t.  Or he could run track or he couldn’t.  It almost didn’t make any difference what color, or what religion, or anything else that somebody may be.  They were teammates is the way we always looked at it.
