At the Wellsville HOF Induction Ceremonies each candidate selects someone special to present them. Each of this year’s presenters all had very good introduction speeches. Some of them are exceptional in our opinion such as Murph Burns. There is nothing more heartwarming than a proud daddy talking about his little girl. Murph even had us with watery eyes when he spoke about daughter Gabrielle. It was very touching and obviously very sincere. It was close to being the best in our opinion.
Our vote for the best presentation had to be the one given by Davey Carter. Carter presented former Wellsville neighbor Jared Mike. Carter got to know Mike simply because he had a basketball hoop in the driveway at his home. He didn’t go to school with him, didn’t formerly coach him and wasn’t even close to his age. He did spend many a Sunday afternoon taking on the gangly youth, one-on-one, in his driveway.
His introduction was well thought out, humorous and entertaining. We’re glad we were able to hear it.
