Ten Years Ago

February 16, 2012

Recalling the grace-under-pressure composure WP Cardinals Quarterback Zach Bartlow displayed in his team’s climb to the title game last football season, it seems hard to believe that he was afraid of being a football player at one time. It was back in fifth grade. He was just a few days too old to stay with the Little Giants, the team he’d played for since third grade. So, he became one of the youngest and smallest players on the Big Giants. “I was scared,” he said, explaining that the big eighth graders on the other teams were pretty foreboding. “That wasn’t a good year for me.”
