School was just down the road. A two -room school but with a big playground. Here, sports first became a passion for Brian. It was not long before he got noticed, and not just for his height!
Fastball, curling, and basketball all became Brian’s sports of choice. He loved the games, the teamwork, and the competition that went with each. It took him across Canada and literally to the other side of the world, in New Zealand, to play for Manitoba and Canada. Brian’s sports prowess was recognized repeatedly with trophies and awards, provincial and national championships. But one mattered most to him.
