NFL QB Drew Stanton: 'It just doesn't seem fair' that Harrison HS is closing

It was the summer of 2000 and Gaylord Stanton had just landed a job in his home state of Michigan.
His son, Drew, was entering his junior year of high school and as a sophomore quarterback in Oregon had established himself as a Division-I recruit.
