My youngest daughter won Play With the Canes in 2002. Shane Willis rolls up in a Cadillac Escalade, Joe rolls up in a beat up Ford Explorer. When they were playing street hockey, Joe jumped way up and extended his stick to knock the ball down. One of our friends asked why we were letting the big kid play. We told her it was Joe. He was 21 at the time.
Last year, we went to the Alumni game and won the jersey off Willis’ back. I reminded him of that day and he said, “I miss the hell out of that big guy”.
