Elliot Johnson grew up in Thatcher, Ariz., a small town in an area where there were a lot of reminders of Old West history. He heard tales of Geronimo, Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp and the wild and woolly town of Tombstone. "Tombstone was in our conference, believe it or not, so we played them. It was kind of a joke, their football field was their baseball field, so right field was about 200 feet, so it was pretty easy to hit it over there," Johnson said.
