    When I think back to my childhood, I think about the Inwood Buccaneers. When I think about the Buccaneers, I think about Mr. Evans. He gave me my childhood. He was larger than life. He coached every sport, was an officer and his signature event each year was the Lake George trip. I was in his car every year and can still hear his laugh, hear his bark and smell his cherry pipe tobacco. He made boys into men on those trips. Hauling wood &, water, washing in the creek, being lined up for inspection, it was all the best a kid could ask for. Hear the whistle, get back to camp NOW! He spoke, you listened, period. I have served as a Buccaneer coach and officer for the past 30 years because of Mr. Evans. I used his plays and had his competitiveness but when it was over, I hoped that I had changed some kids lives for the better. God Bless that man. He will never be forgotten.
