From Minutemen to Ironmen

-A A +A
By Mike Forster

In the mid-1980s, a couple of jocks graduated from Liberty High School. Kevin Willis and Chris Tharp were fast friends who played football for the Minutemen. Willis was a middle linebacker and Tharp was a slightly-built defensive lineman. They played for Dr. John Walker, and ?You walked a straight line under him,? according to Willis.

Fast forward twenty-some years, and the two are teammates again. Only now, instead of tackling Cavaliers and Bees, the two are taking on the grueling course of the Ironman world.
