2013-07-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Zach, Glad you enjoyed my first-hand photo I took of Keon Barnum last week. Who do you think takes over for Jose Veras? Jose Cisnero or Hector Ambriz?
(Brent from Laguna Beach)
That was a great picture I sent that around to a couple scouts they got a good laugh. From what I hear Jose Cisnero is going to get the first crack at it. (Zach Mortimer)
