One thing Brian did for the basketball team in high school was keep statistics and the scorebook. In 1988 he took over the scorebook for the high school boys' and girls' basketball teams and is still doing them today. Brian also does the football stat book which he started back in the early 1990s and is still volunteering for this job in 2010. When the game is over, Brian heads to the phone to call the scores in. He also compiles the stats and sends them to newspapers and over the Internet.
Brian has worked at the Manning-Manilla Golf Course since graduating in 1975 and has helped with many golf meets. He started writing sports for the Manning-Monitor back in the fall of 1997.
Back during the wintertime in the mid-1980s, Brian decided to start the process of updating sports records for the high school, starting first with basketball and football. He spent mega hours at the Manning Monitor office reading microfilm and newspapers along with checking on records at the school. At the Manning High School he found that they only had records back to the late 1950s. Brian collected all of the information he could and set out to different towns in the area to start the research during the late 1980s; a job he continues to the present time. He spent days during the winter at Carroll, Audubon, Manilla, Denison, Harlan, Glidden, Coon Rapids, Scranton, Woodbine, Ida Grove, and Bayard collecting score and game data in their community newspapers.
