|A few minutes later, my Nike Air Max 95 Femme mom comes back.
“Where’s that bathroom?” I ask her.
It’s several months later, now, and I still think about that Adidas ZX Flux Femme day often. It seems like a blur — the tests, the diagnosis, the gradual realization that things would be different Nike Roshe Run Femme from then on — and not much about it makes sense. But one thing always will:
Everyone cried but my dad.
It’s the fall of Nike Air Max 90 Mens 1978, I am three years old, and my dad says yes.
After four years in the Army, my dad, Jeff Capel Jr., has graduated with a Adidas Superstar Homme degree in health and physical education from Fayetteville State. And he is looking to become a basketball coach.You know how most coaches tend to get their start from a personal connection? Someone knows someone, who used to play for someone, or coach for someone … something like that? Yeah, well — here’s my dad’s best connection, as a young black man trying to break into coaching Nike Air Max 90 Hombre in 1978: He still lives in the town where he went to high school.
And so, at 25 years old, Jeff Capel Jr. goes Nike Air Presto Femme back to Pinecrest High, in Southern Pines, North Carolina, and asks for a job.
And they say no.
But wait, they Nike Air Presto Hombre tell him: You can coach JV — as a volunteer.
And my dad says yes.
It’s the summer of 1985, I am 10 years old, and Bob Adidas Swift Run Femme Staak is sitting right there. Right there — watching Pinecrest High School varsity basketball. Coach Staak is the head coach Nike Air Max 90 Womens Pink at Wake Forest, and Pinecrest has traveled to Winston-Salem for the Wake Forest team camp. Coach Staak doesn’t know much about Pinecrest as a team, or about Southern Pines as a town. But they have a player he is looking to recruit, and so he’s there to scout.
The game starts, and the player is as good as advertised. Matter of fact, the whole team is pretty good. Matter of fact … and that’s when Bob Staak notices something.
This Pinecrest coach is pretty damn impressive.
