My Friend Barry: Posted on 10/27/01 - by Kenneth Stepp: 

Barry and I went to high school together, and both played guard on the Daniel High School Varsity football team. While we were all three working out, our classmate "Bud" Cobb called us "le gran trois" which means the big three in high school French. I'm a lawyer in Florida, and "Bud" is a lawyer in South Carolina. The tragedy is that Barry never had a career beyond Viet Nam where he gave his life for his country. Ken Stepp.
