Potters have an educated eye
watching and cheering
them on this season!
The renowned sports journalist, Mr. Dave Kindred
has only missed a handful of Lady Potters games
since he first started coming four years ago. Since moving
back to the area after spending the last 45 years
traveling the globe in search of yet another sports
story, Dave has found comfort in being a "fan".
He isn't sure how many times he had to repeat the
line "I'm not a fan, I'm a writer" throughout his
career. Being a fan can cloud the objectivity
of capturing those wonderful sports stories we often
read. But now, Dave feels at peace with just
enjoying Morton Lady Potters basketball.
