The Master's College men's and women's basketball teams moved into the National Christian College Athletic Association's national top 10 lists this week.
We met this guy in different ways. We, being members of The Signal's Sports Department. We thought he was quirky, even neurotic. The ones who stay in contact with him still feel the same way.
