Did anyone know that Russ Ferrell who grew up here in Scottsburg was certified as the fastest person to run backwards in our community? I think he has a certificate hanging in the athletc directors office. Thats awesome. one of our very own.

Really? I used to go out with him. I never knew he was so talented. Pretty cool I guess. Kind of stupid in a way. Who did he run against?

Wow, we should have a parade for him. We could have everyone drive and walk it backwards to celebrate our hero.

I knew him. I also know his secret. First you have to have an awkwardly shaped body, the type where your butt is high off the ground. Next you have to be pop bellied, thats what keeps you balanced. Then you where penny loafers that are a size too big for your feet along with blue jean shorts that look like Dockers. Any shirt will do but he prefferes fancy button down ones. Start practicing .1953

I bet he got fast from backing up from bullies. He got picked on for being a dork all the time.

I hear he lives in a gated community where he hides from bullies. The neighbors say he still practices. There are skid marks and divots where he falls down. He has his yougest son practicing with him for the Dork Olympics.

We used to ride the late bus in jr high. Would kill time in the gym waiting on it. I was waiting my turn on the peg board (climbing apparatus) behind Russ. One of the big wooden pegs slipped out of the hole as he was pulling himself up and hit him square in the mouth. He came down spitting out teeth, I backed away from that peg board pretty quick my self.

I heard he always rode the short bus. Thats a funny story though. He's still a Dork. I can't wait until he leaves Terre haute and moves back to Scottsburg so we can go jogging backwards.

We should build a statue of him in front of the high school. It would take alot of bronze for that big honker of a nose though.

I have some ol' home videos of him practicing that I'm sure he don't want to get out. Where do I send them?
