I live in West Torrance, which is about a mile from Redondo Union H.S. where the event is being held.
I wore my red N Adidas shirt, as usual to an event like this because occasionally someone will take notice and start up an interesting conversation.
As luck would have it as I was sitting there when a very pretty lady noticed my shirt and struck up a conversation with me about her son going to Nebraska. Of course, it was Johnny's mom. So I met Mom, Dad and daughter in the stands and had a couple of nice conversations with them.
Before I met Mrs. Stanton I had, of course, looked out on the field to see if I could spot Johnny. He caught my eye pretty quickly. He is in great physical condition, absolutely ripped, and has great muscle development in his legs. I was trying to judge his height from the stands, and I had guessed between 6' 1" and 6' 2". Shortly thereafter Matt Barkley showed up and he and Johnny started talking. They are almost exactly the same height and look to be the same weight. Johnny is, of course in better shape, but Barkley is well put together. Mrs. Stanton later said he is 6 foot 2.
