I spent about three hours riding and talking yesterday with Ronnie Yow, the brother of Kay Yow, who passed away about two weeks ago.
We talked about his sister and the influence she had on the people she came in contact with. We also got the chance to discuss the other Yow girls Debbie and Susan. Debbie, the athletic director at Maryland and Susan, the head women’s basketball coach at Belmont Abbey.
I also got the scoop on the Clemson Tiger football team and their beloved football coach Frank Howard and his affection for orange football shoes when the Tigers played the N.C. white-shoes bunch back in the late 60′s…..
I will have more stories from that three-houir cruise coming up in this blog over the next several days and believe me, the Yow family is a special bred with the patriarch Hilton Yow passing on his very own Gibsonville-style of family endearment
