Six Decades In and Still a Champion

John Swann shows the determination of a champion.
My honey, Leah's, brother-in-law John Swann, who is 64 and is missing many of his functioning parts, re-claimed a little of that youthful dash a week or so ago when he won Lynchburg's Cavalier Pool Tournament in Lynchburg.

John, who played on a state championship basketball team at E.C. Glass High when he was a kid, knows that championship feeling, but it can't be much better than it is when you beat a guy who is 26 years your junior and the defending champ. John did that. And he's a good guy, too, not the fierce-looking competitor you see here.
