Leif Garretson - Discus Thrower
Leif was very active in junior high and high school, athletically, in extracurricular activities, and with his own hobbies, and he did well in school. I think in many ways these were the best years of his life. He was still full of hopes and dreams, possibilities.
This photo is of him in the junior high field day when he astonished everyone with how far he could lob the discus and shot put. Leif was always extremely strong.
He played soccer, where he could boot a ball far down the field, and earned his black belt in judo in junior high. In high school, he continued to play soccer through his freshman year.
And,he took up guitar playing. More on that later.
