Funny how a commitment to Saint Joe's can make
people smile.

Time out for a family photo. Derrick was a starter for Dobbins' 1985 Pub champs and his brother, Eric "Hank" Gathers, was
a star on that team with Greg "Bo" Kimble. Hank and Bo became an incredible show at Loyola Marymount University. Hank
died of heart problems while playing for LMU in 1990. Lucille Gathers, mom of Derrick and Hank, is in the back row, center,
of this photo, wearing pink.
