Fun fact that no one cares about while I'm talking about him:
My freshman year in high school, I wasn't good enough to make the travel squad for varsity playoff games... so I volunteered to be an equipment manager through the playoffs, so I could be at the games with the team anyway. Team bus, team meal, team travel schedule were all better than the arrangements the school made for the student section, so it was a no-brainer.
The first game I played water boy for? Against Raceland (KY) High School, where Gerad Parker was on the opposite sideline coaching WR's/DB's. Small-ish world for this Notre Dame internet message board loser!
