Lou Hershman, Team Accountant
All teams have trainers, equipment managers and coaches. Some even have psychiatrists and psychics. But the Notre Dame 8th grade basketball team has something even better. Accountant Lou Hershman. His Mensan mind keeps a running tally of points and fouls in each game. And during a close game between Notre Dame and St. Jane's 8th grade teams this afternoon, it was Hershman who pointed out that St. Jane's had committed enough second half fouls to allow one and ones. Refs went back to the scorekeepers table, and it turned out Lou was right.
Dat, the player fouled, sunk two free throws.
Notre Dame ended with a three point lead.
A St. Jane's priest, sitting in the stands, was so upset after the game that he became a Lutheran.
Angry St. Jane's fans were looking for Lou, but he hid behind a crucifix.
Blogger's Note: The player who won the tip off for Notre Dame is Caden G.
