Generations

March 6, 2013
By

It is to that point that I am beginning to see the 3rd generation go through Batesville High School. I followed Ace Moorman through Batesville High School, and I am very familiar with his exploits. He was excellent in football, basketball, and baseball and went on to UC to continue his career. Ace played in an era when Batesville was blessed with all kinds of collegiate-ready athletes. That will be a story for another day. Then his son, Gary, entered onto the scene. Gary played for me and was a coaches dream. He was always in the game and learned his trade very quickly. When the game came down to the wire, you wanted Gary on the floor and in charge. He took his skills to the next level and is now one of the best young coaches around. Gary made his name first at Ben Davis and now at OA. Now playing at BHS is Gary’s son, Mark, the third generation, and he has already burst upon the scene. He quarterbacked an excellent freshmen football team last fall and is now making his presence felt in basketball. Who knows how good he will be before his career is over at BHS. I would imagine if you got the three of them together they might tell you baseball is their first love. I know for a fact that the older two starred at that sport, and I understand young Mark is quite accomplished there as well. If you know some other three generation stories, give me a buzz and I will write about them as well.
