“Holy cow,” said Foard coach Alison Yount. “There are no words. Cardiac arrest. I think I had a heart attack about 17 times on the bench, at least.”

Conflict of interests

Russell lives outside in a tent.

He’s an educated man. He’s sober. He’s homeless – a lifestyle that he said puts him on the street every day looking for meals and shelter.

But food is not the problem, he said. Neither is supplies. His problem is finding a safe place to reside, something that puts him into contact with police all the time.
