Big or Diminutive?

Hello Dear Reader,
Grandpa (Wes) Carter continued in sports his junior year of high school. Twice in his personal history he mentions that because he was held back he was bigger and older which helped him achieve in athletics in high school. I wonder if he was trying to be positive about a bad experience.

In one newspaper clipping in his high school scrapbook it says, “Paced by the diminutive Carter at forward, Provo High basketball team turned back a scrappy crew from Bingham 28 to 20 here Friday. Carter, converting seven points from the foul line, collected 13 points.” He may have been bigger than he was two years earlier but he was far from the biggest man on the team. In some team pictures he looks as though he was the smallest.

Bingham sons and daughters
Like the mighty waters
Roll along to victory.
Tides of warriors greet us
With their teams to beat us
But we’ll fight for victory.
Onward, onward team against the foe
Forward, forward our honored banners go.
All our foes will tremble
As our teams assemble
On, on, on to victory.

(Just not when that small forward Carter shoots our light out!)
