The senior year of high school, what a pivotal time in a person’s life. Jim Swarthow was a senior as average as any other of his time. He grew up in an average sized town in Tennessee, and attended a high school with the population of 1,200 students. As a student he made fair grades, yet never cracked a book when he left the doors of school heading home.

     Fixing up an old car was not the only exciting event that took place for Jim during his senior year. Although Jim did not participate on any athletics teams during his senior year, he was an avid supporter of all the teams. During the fall he would attend all the football games, no matter if they were at home or away. His younger brother played on the football team and he loved to go watch and support his brother. His brother was three years younger than Jim, and they were both very close to one another. When the football season would end, Jim could be found in the gymnasium supporting the basketball team. He had played basketball from the eighth grade until the tenth grade, but he realized the sport was not for him so he decided to reverse the role and become a fan instead.
