We started out as youngsters playing Bob West and Minor League. Lenny represented Tivoli and I represented Boys Town, even though wanted to represent Tivoli at the same time it never happened because of our fathers. But we ended up at Clarendon College together and created havoc throughout the country and as you can see today we received our just reward," he said.
