On 04/20/99 at approximately 1145 hours, oetective Boatright
(10l was advised of a shooting which had occurred at columbine High
School located at 6201 South Pierce Street in unincorporated
Jefferson County. During the course of that incident, numerous
jurisdictions had responded to include various metro area SWAT
teams. As the incidenc waa on-going, IO was advised officers on
scene had exchange gunfi4e with suspects in the school. In
addition, IO was told there had been explosions in and around the
school obviously related to this incident. At that time Commande~
Debra Grainger notified IO the First Judicial District Law
Enforcement Critical Incident ~eam had been placed en call and was
requested to regpon~ to Clement Park located in the area of Bowles
Avenu~ and Pierce Street. 10 would note at this time it had not
been confirmed as to whether or not the Critical Incident T~am was
going to be activated.

On the same date at approximately 1325 hours, 10 along with


Detective Doll and Officer Brian Thompson, responded to Clement
Park in the area of Bowles Avenue and Pierce Street where the
command post had teen established. IQ would note additional A?D
officers, as well a$ numerous other jurisdictions, had also been
called co the same location. 10 remained at the command post until
it was determined the Critical Incident Team was in face going to
be activated. Co~~ander Grainger subsequently directed IO along
with Officer Thompson to respond to Leawood Elementary School
located at 6155 Leawood Drive, Littleton, Cclor~do. 10 along with
Officer Thompson subsequently arrived at that location at
approximately 1710 hours.
On the same date at approximately l735 hours, 10 was requested
to interview Jefferson County Deputy Neil Gardner #3010 in
accordance with the policies and procedures established through the
Critical Incident Team protocol. IO subsequently conducted the
above interview witnes~ed by Officer Thompson. The aforementioned
interview was recorded and that reaording was transcribed. In

command personnel to assist in a visual inspection of all vehicles


parked in an east park~ng area of Clement Park. In addition, IO
was requested to assist, documenting all vehicles in terms of
license plate and V!N numbers. Once that process was completed,
10, assisted by Officer Thompson, photographed the west center row
of vehicles to include the weste~n moet row of vehicles in that
eame parking lot.

Once that process was completed, IO was subsequently assigned


to assist in a line search of Pierce Street beginning just south of
the command POSt area. The aforementioned search continued south
to the southern most boundary of the crime scene which was being
protected by state troopers along with Jefferson County deputies.

On the same date at approximately l125 hours IO waS requested


to assist in a grid search of the north faculty parking lot of
Columbine High School. The aforementioned search was being
coordinated by Sergeant Booras of the Arvada Police Department and
the team itself included officers from Arvada, Lakewood, Jefferson
county, Colorado Bureau of Investigacion and Alcohol, Tobacco &
Firearm agen~s. Specifically, 10 was requested to search for
bul1~t5r bullet casings, bomb fragments and any other item which
could be considered as having eVidentiary value. It had been
predetermined if any items were located, they were to be
identified, photographed and then collected by the Jefferson County
deputy assigned to the search team. That deputy is identified as
Rick Reek.er.
At the completion of the above described grid search, IO again
was requested to photograph vehicles in the north faculty parking
lot. 10 would note the vehicles had already been logged in terms
of license plates and VIN numbers Specifically IO was requested
to photograph the east center row along with the far eaSt row of
cars parked in that lot.
Once the processing of that parking lot was completed, the
same team was requested to continue a grid search in a counter
clockwise manner in an effort to locate additional items of
evidence IO would note the aforementioned search team continued
searching in the manner indicated until they reached an area taped
off by the FBI which was located on the southwest section of
columbine High School. 10 was informed the FBI had been
specifically assigned to conduct a search related to the southwest
entrance area of the school.
IO alone with the same search team then conducted a similar
grid search on
the eastern portion of the school property leading
down to the south side of the bUilding. Again th~t search was
conducted in a similar manner as previously described.
Once the above described grid search was completed, IO

r~?orts c~ac t~ere were manj victims currently being evac~ated from

this, r ~as info=med by Cmdr. Grai~ge= at che Ar/ada Police
Depa=tment that the Je£~e~son C~unty C=itical Incident Team had
been puc on standby based upon inf~~at~on indicating local SWAI
Tea~s were pr~paring to enter t~e school i~ order to take the
two gunmen i~to custoc'l.
Apprcx:ma:ely t~e~cy mi~u:es lace~, ! was advised tha~ the

I responded to nanny Clemments ?ark which is locat~d at


W Bowles Ave, and S. Pierce St., in Jef:erson County. This park
is located directly to the norch of Columbi~e High School. Upon my
ar~ival, ! met with ot~e~ inve$ciga~ors and found police officers
from va~~ous jur~sdic~ions wa:~ing i~ t~e vicinicy of ~he command

were bei~g asked to he~p in~er7iew ~~;~e$ses from t~e school.
For the next sever~l hours, we waited ac the pa~k while
SWAT ~eamg checked the scheol :or the sU$pec~s. Lacer in the
a::erncon, we were advised th~e che school had bee~ cleared and it
appeared, at this ti~e, as if two of the indiViduals involved in
the shoeting had been found dead of self-inflicted gunshot wounds.
Based ucon ~hi3 i~fo~mation, we learned the C~~:ica~ Incident
Team wou:d be
utilized to assisc w~=~ inter7~ews or SWAT personnel
and possibly help process the crime scene, We learned that a
School Resou~ce Office~ ~d exchanged gunfire with the two gunmen,

On April 20 r 1999 at approximately 12:30 p.m. ! was contacted
by Sergeant Hutc~craft and ins~ructed to attend a briefing in
Commander Grainger's office, Myself and Detective Bryant were
assigned to respond to University Hospital located at 4400 East 9th
Street in Denver, where a victim of the shooting at Columbine High
School had been transporeeo.
upon arrival, myself and Detective Bryant learned the victim!
who had tentatively been identified as Mark Taylor (17 years old),
was currently in the radiology department, It was anticipated he
would be taken directly to Burgeri as he had suffered at least two
gunshot wounds and his condition was critical.
I subsequently contacted Officer C. Evenson (#98-9;, a
Colorado University police officer, who advised he had collected
the victim'S clothing upon his arrival, He turned over a brown
paper bag which contained three items, the victim's pants, shirt
and boxer shorts.
Detective Bryant and myself spoke briefly with Dr, Paul
Bender, che emergency room physician who treated the victim upon
his arrival. Dr. Bender stated the victim had what appeared to be
an entry wound under his left arm. The bullet traveled across his
thoracic chest and exited the right side of his body. He stated
the vlctim also has a wound on the inside of his right upper arm
and that injury could very well have been caused by the same
bullet. Dr, Bende~ advised that the victim also had a bullet wound
in his upper l$f~ thigh which appeared to have exited his left
buttock, The doctor advised ~-rays of the victimls body did not
reveal any foreign bodies. He also advised the victim's arm had
not been x-rayed as yet and did not rule out the possibility a
fragment may be found in hi. right arm.
At 1~S2 p.m. ! repackaged the clothing items seized from the
victim and placed each item into a separace paper bag, The three
i~emg consisted of a pair of blue pants, size 36 x 32, with
"Dickies" name brand, a pair of red boxer shorts, size XLI with
uTulex ll name brand and a gt'ay short sleeve shirt, size L, with uTOp
Dawg" name brand, These items wet'e locked in the trunk of Arvada
Police Department unit C148 until they wer$ removed at the Arvada
Police Department hy myself,
Prior to leaving the hospital, Detective Bryant and Denver
police Department Oetective Shultz #85007 interviewed the victirn $l

mother and two ocher persons who had responded to university


Hospital. (See Detective Bryant's report.} Myself and Detective
Bryant cleared University Hospital at 5:54 p,m. Detective·Shultz
remained in order to interview the victim, who wag still in surgery
when we left.

Refer to Jefferson county Sheriff's Deparement, Case #99-7625.


On 04/20{99, IO along with Ofc, Gaet~~o were assigned by Cmdr,
Grainger to respond to St. Anchony's Central Hospital to assiit
Jefferson County Sheriff's Oepartment in the shooting incident that
occurred at columbine High S~hool. 10 and Ofe. Gaetano's
assignment was to make contact with the victims, obtain ~~y
evidentiary item~, as well as statements from the victims, if
poaai~le. Upon our arrival (approximately 1:30 p.m.) at the
hospital, we met with uniformed Denver Police Ofc. D. A. Awe, #92-
74, He advised that he had been standins by ana that there were
two patients that had come into the hospital, due to gunshot wounds
from the Columbine gigh School incident. We then met w~th Dr.
DUry, seaff emergency Physician at St. Anthony'S Central, along
with a Dr, Winston Tripp, also of the Emergency Room, St. Anthony's
Hospital, At thiS time, it was learned that two subjects had come
in, one identified as Kacey Ruegsegger, a white, 17 year old
female, DOB, 03{29/S2, patient I.D. iOOl56022S. Dr. Dury advised
that she was going for an arterial g~am tea~ing and that she was
suffering from two gunshot wounds. He described one as to the
right shoulder and the other as a more minor injury in the right
hand. It was his belief thac the wound in the righc shoulder was
caused by a large caliber or hig~ velocity weapon. Re stated his
opinion of her condition was that she waS not critical and would be
classif~ed as serious condition. We then spoke with Or. Tripp, who
was caring for a paciene idencified as Michael Johnson, DOB:
unknown, white male S~lect patient 1.0. ItOQl.50226. Pro Tripp
advised that he had six gunshot: wounds. They consisted of two in
the neck, one being in the right cheek, the other in the neck. He
believed these to be possibly caused by shrapnel of some sort and
he had two holes in the left upper thigh and was suffering from
paralysis of the leg at this cime. He also had one minor injury in
the hand, as well as one in ehe upper right ar.M on the backside of
the arm, which appeared to be a through and ehrou9h wound, Subject
Johnson was in the process of being transferred to the operating
suite wichin the hospital for surgery, relative eo the wounds,
In the intervening time period', Oet. Wilhelm, I.O. #l437, from
Lakewood poliee Oepartment arrived at the emergency room and
offered to assist with the processing of ehe patienes, Based upon
the informat~on provided to us by the charge nurse in the emergency
room at St. Anthony's Central Hospital, it was believed at this
time that they would be receiving approximately two to three
critical care patients. as well as an unknown number of lesser
injury patients at their facility.
At approximately 2:00 p.m., IO received the clothing from ~ane
Cole, emergency room R.N., for victim, Mike Johnson. Due to the
doctors attending to Mike Johnson, no attempt at this time was made
to interview or talk with him relative to the incident. Upon
receipt of the clothing, IO took the two grocery bage that all hi.

form from St. Anthony emergency room that: I had signed to receive
the clothing and placed it within the trunk of my police vehicle,
wh~ch was identified as Unit #C155. The trunk was locked and the
clothing left in there at this point. It should be noted at this
time that Nurse Cole advieea 10 that there was a wallet within the
bags and was laying on top and ehe had examined ehe content a and
found it contained no currency.
SutHaequently, we were advised by the charge nurse aga.in that
there was a patient who was being transferred to St. Anthony'S
Central by helicopter from the Littleton Hospital, due to a gunshot
wounct to the right leg. This patient was transferrect for the
purpose of doing an arterial gram relative to the vessels in the
leg to determine the extent of the injUry, as the Littlecon
facility was not capable of conducting this testing. This subject
arrived and was identified as Makai Hall, also a white male, no
further description at this time, patient t.D. # 001.60291. The
subject was brought into the emergency room and prepared to go to
the lab for the testing as preViously mentioned. At this time, I
asked medical personnel if there was any clothing that had been
transferred with him and they advised that they did not believe any
had been transported.

A fourth victim was ultimately brou9h~ to St. Anthony's


emergency room. He waS accompanied by Dee. Joel Humphrey, Denver
Police Department, Intel Bureau. He arrived via ambulance, Oet,
Humphrey had already obeained his clothing, as well as a statement
from him. This subject was suffering from several gunshot wounds,
most notable being one to the head, the arm and the fooe. At ~his
time, he was unable to move his right side and was described as
being very slow in his mentation. D~t. Humphrey advised to that
th ct was Pa DOB, 05/12/81, and he resided
a~ This subject was attended to
by

At this timet we were informed by the hospital, they didntt


know when or if they would get any additional patients, that they
were still uncertain whether any more were coming. Based upon the
fact that there were four viceims in the hospital and four
officers, which consisted of IO, Ofc. Gaetano, Det. Wilhelm f~om
Lakewood, and Det. Humphrey from Denver, we agreed to split the
patients up with the responsibility as follOWS. Ofc, Gaatano was
responsible for patient, Kacey Ruegsegger; Det. Wilhelm was
responsible for patient, Michael Johnson; Dec. Humphrey was
responsible for patient, Patrick Ireland; and 10 would be
responsible for Makai gall. F~r any additional information
relative to the other patients, please see the reports generated by
the officers,
Based upon the above mentioned division of responsibilities at
approximately 1600 hours, the clothing that IO had locked in the
trunk of Unit #C255 for patient. Michael J~hnson was eranster4ed to

Det. Wilhelm of the Lakewood Police DepaLtment. Again, it should


be noted that this clothing had not been inventoried at this poine,
that there were two large grooery bags and Det, Wilhelm will follow
up with the responsibility for those items,
IO then contacted Makai Hall in the emergeney room, as he had
been returned from the lab testing: as previously mentioned in this
~eport. It should be noted that Hall was somewhat 9~o99Yt but
appeared throughout the cours~ of my interview to be very cognizant
of his surroundings and quiee responsive to the questions that r
had posed to him, however, if there was a lapse in ~onversation
while I made notes! he quite readily appeared to doze off, due eo
the pain medication that had been administered.

Makai Hall'S statement was; I begin the inte~iew by asking


him to tell me where he was and what he recalled of the sequence of
events and who was with him, and what had happened. Makai told
your to that he was in the library at Columbine High School with
friends, whom he identified as Pat Ireland, Daniel Stepleecn, Cory
OePooter, and Austin Eubanks. He went on to say that to the best
of his knowledge, both Austin and Dan had been shot in the knee and
hi9 f~iend, Pat, had been shce in ~he head. He was uncertain as to
what Pat's condition was or where he wa~. At this time, he told IO
that he knew who shot him and went on to say thae it was Oylan, who
he believed was a senior at Columbine H1gh School, but he possibly
may have dropped out. He went on to advise that last year, meaning
the prior school year, he had taken a French class and that he and
Dylan had been partners in that cla.s. He said that Dylan shot him
with a shotgun. Nhen aSked how he knew wno had shot him, he
recognized him as he had seen h1$ face. He went on eo describe him
as wearing a lon9! black trench coat and a dark baseball cap, which
he wore with the hill over the back of his neck. He said he
thought at this time he recognized the voice of the other subject
ana he was sure he was acquainted with him, but he could not put a
name with it. !n response to how many persons had been doing
shooting, he advised thae he had only se~n two people l one again,
was Dylan and the other one, which he said he was sure he knew the
subject from school, but he could not place a name on him.
In response to my question regarding known associates of Dylan
or persons in the ~Trench Coat Mafia," he replied that Oylan had a
very close friend by the name of Zack and he was uneercain on the
last name, bue thought ic was Taylor. Moving back to his seaeement
that Oylan had shot him with a shocgun, I made inquiry as to his
familiarity with firearms and why he was certain it was a shotgun.
He said that he was reasonably familiar with firearms as he had
been both big game hunting and bird hunting with his fsther on
previous occasions and did know the difference between a rifle and
a shotgun. He sai~ he was certain that the gun ehat Dylan shot him
with was a shotgun.
I then asked him to explain how the situation had presented

itself to him, He saiq he was not aware of anything/ other than


that there was some loud explosions or bangs and, at this time, a
ar~ teacher by the name of M~s" Neilson came into the library and
told the ~tudents to get down. Shortly thereafter/ the two
subjects he previously ideneified as nylan and the unknown .econd
person, came into the library and began shooting there. Makai then
told 10 and repeated the fact that subject, Dylan, had a shotgun
and he also had, what he described as a hand held assault gun
similar to an Uzi, which he believed was possibly fUlly automatic,
but he wasn't certain. He said Oylan began firing with the hand
held assault gun and fired off several rounds in a very rapid
fashion. ! again queried him relative to semi-automatic versus
automatic. He said he couldn't be certain, Due he felt that the
rounds were so fast that it made him believ~ it was a auto handgun.
He went on to state that at this time, he then fired the shoe gun at
himself and the othe4S previously mentioned as being with him,
they were hiding unae~ a eable in the library, He said he then
knew ~hat he had been hit in the leSt as well as Patrick had been
hit as we.ll.

At chi. time, he said Oylan proceeded to throw a bomb down


next to them, where they lay on the floor. I asked him to describe
this bomb and he said he believed it was a homemade type bomb with
a wick in the end, which he lit. He described it as being
app~oximately 3/4 inch in diameter ana wrapped with duct tape. He
then reiterated that Dylan had shot them previously with the
shotgun and than threw a bomb next to them. Mal<ai qrabbed the bomb
and threw it acrosS the library, he estimated some 20 to 30 feet,
at which time it exploded, making a very loud noise. I then asked
him for some additional background material that he might have on
the subject. Oylan. He said that he had shared the French class
with him during the last school year and that during that time,
Dylan had spoken to him about how he made pipe bombs at home. He
went on to say that he had a very bad temper and couldn'e control
it. He further stated that he had an extreme dislike for the
French teacher and constantly made comments that were either
derogatory or critical of her.
At the conclusion of the interview with Makai gall, !O
obtained specific information on the subject, including full name,
address, date of birth, etc., etc. IO also obtained a Medical
Consent to Release information from David W. Hall, who is
identified as the father of Makai Hall. This release authorizes
Axvada Police Depa~tment ana Jefferson County Sheriffls Department
or 4n¥ other law enforcement agency to obtain medical records
pertinent to this incident from St. Anthony's Central Hospital, as
well as Littleton Kospita~, where the Subject was first
transported.
At this time, subject Makai Hall w"s be~omin9 quite drowsy and
was haVing difficulty in remaining aw~ke and the inte~iew was
terminated while he awaited his turn in surgery.

While waiting outside the surgical suite, IO was contacted by


medical personnel and asked who was going to receive the bullet
that the doctor was going to rem~ from the leg of Makai Hall. 10
informed him that I was there for that purpose. At this time, I
was issued surgical sown, cap, boots, and mask and escorted into
the surgery sUite. The subjece was being operated on at ~hie eime
DY Or. Cbarles Rowland. IO watched him as he proDed the wound with
an orthoscope and removed the projectile, giving it to the scrub
assistant who cleaned it up, then placed it in a plastic container
and handed it to me. My examination at this point was visual and
it wQula appea~ that it was a lead projectile and was spherical in
snape and would be compazab Le with the "00'· buck size. 10 then
asked Dr. aowland about the other projeceile ehae was showing in
the x-rays that were hanging on the wall, He advised that
projectile was imbedded in the bone and that he would not be
removing it as there was no medical necessity to do so and Hall
would be better off to have it left there, .mDedded in the Done.
After exiting the surgical suite and removing the surgical
clothing, IO and Ofo. Gaetano returned to the Arvada Police
Department, where ehe clothing that she had obtained from victim t
Kacey Ruegsesger, was spread Qut to dry in the lab. IO also
prepared the property sheets for the items, as well as the one
projectile preViously mentioned in my report, which was removed
from Makai Hall. It should be noted here that during the course of
my interview Makai Hall, I made further inquiry of him relative to
items of clothing that he was wearing. He advised that they bad
been removed at the Littleton KO$pital and he had no idea where his
clothing was.
Eased upon a prior phone conversation that 10 had with Sgt,
Hutchcraft, IO as well as Ofe. Gaetano were advised that once we
had ~etu~ned to headquarters and completed the paperwork relative
to the evidence we could secure for the day, and we should respond

On 04/21/99, IO responded to St. Anthony's Central to re-


interview Makai Hall. It was determined that subject, Hall, was in
room 4J5 west, in the St. Anthony's Central Hospital. IO went to
the room and mee with the subject( Hall. as well as other me~ers
of his family. I asked him if he felt like he oould talk to me
some more, at this time. He responded yes, that he COUld. I did
a brief review of the facts as he had previously given me on the
day prior and in clarification, h~ advised that while in the
liDrary, the suDjects, Cory DePooter and Austin EuDanks, had moved
from his location to another area in the liDrary prior to the
shooting,. He was uncertain specifically as where they were when
the shooting began in the library. Sieting with him at this eime,
specifically, was Pat !reland, Dan Stepleeon, as well as an unknown
Aaian girl. Makai confirmed his statement of the prior days, in
ehat he said there were only ~wo shooters to the best of hi$
knowledge, one being Dylan and he advised chac the las, name ne had
9iven me yesterday, whicn he believed to be McDermott, was
incorrect, that his last name was the same as whae he had observed
in his hospital room on the ealevision. He again, reiterated the
fact that he believed he ~ec09nized the second shooter from his
observations of his face, saying he did not know him personally,
but he did state that the subject who had heen shown on television
was the same person who he had observed with Dylan and was
responsible for the shooting. In clarification, Hall was referring
to Oylan Klebold and E~ic Harris. He went oe to reaffirm that the
only known associate that he cou14 give me by name was the zack/ as
he had previously mentioned, who was a very good friend of nylan's.

I then asked him if there had been any talk or r~mora about
school among his friends or anyone else, "that he knew of, regarding
t.his incident occurring in the hours or days proceeding the e-vent
on 04/20. He said that he had not heard anything of it until tne
time that it act.ually oe=urred. I then asked how he had managea to
get out of the library. He advised that: after firing several
rounds, Dylan kept yellin9 words to the effece that he was out of
ammunition or needed additional clips, at which time it was his
belief chat he left the liD.ary and that Makai Hall and others took
this opportunity to run Que of the school And made contact with ehe
police. He also stated, at this eime Dan Stapleton had ~n out
with him, but Patrick Ireland was not able to leave.
It should be noted at this time that ehere was a considerable
amount of activity in his room, with the associated family members
and friends from achool dropping by co see him, as well as the
medical Itaff checking up on him. At this point in the interview/
he was still somewhat groggy, although more alert thAn he was on
the p.evious day. 'rhe nu.sing staff came in and advised that there
was going to be a chapel service as a memorial to che 9tude~ts at
ColumQine High at this time and as~eQ him if he wanted ,0

Rogers was scheduled to V~S1t him later in the afee~oon and


arrangements were made to continue this interview in late afternoon
or the following morning on 04/22. At this time, no further
informacion was able to be developed from th.. subject.
On 04/22/99 at approximat..ly 8,30 to 8,4$ a.m., 10 returned to
St.. Anthony'S Centra.l Hospital too conclude the interview with Makai
Hall. At this time¥ I again reviewed the prior statements he had
made relative to the questions that I nad pceed , 10 not"d no
significant diff"rence. in g"neral terms. He elaborated somewhat
on th.. fact that wh..n be and Dan Stepleton ran out, there were
~~ite a numb"r of otbers that ..1.0 ran out with him. I aeked him
to explain how tbia had occurr..<i. He said that an unknown p..rson
had apparently oome up the back stairs or a back entranCe to the
librar/ and y"ll"d to all of th" students to get out of eh.. library
and they all ran to th.. exit. It was Hall's b ..lief that this
subject was a police officer, probably a SWAT offic..r, although he
never saw him specifically, He again reiterated that he and
approximat.ely 20 others then ran out the back door and were
escorted to a hiding location behind $om$ police units and they
were then transported two or three at a time, cased upon severity
of injury to a more distant location for triage and transport to
the hospital. He said after a. short period of time, he was able to
make it to the hospital. I then asked him, r&lative tb his injury!
that being the gunshot wound in his leg. how he was able to get
Que. He said he just was able to do it and h. ran with che others
as best he could.
At this time, Hall reports seeing an unknown subject on tne
roof area of the school. He was unable to identify for me if this
person was a police officer or a suspect.
I then asked him if he could provide me with any additional
names of SUbjects that might be closely associated with Dylan and
the other shooter. He said if he had his high school yearbook. he
could poine out those individuals, but he did not know tnem by
nam... IO requ..st..<i that when he was released from the hospieal,
which was presumed will he 04/23/99 that he look through his
y .... rbook and oall me with the names that he develops from the
yearbook.
t chen asked him for further descriptions
~elative to the
bomb. He descriDed it more clearly than he had on the day
preVious. He believed it was about 5~ long and somewhere in the
neighbornood of 3/4" t.o 1" in diameter. He said it did not feel
heavy enough to be incased in a metal pipe. but the object waS
cylindrical in shape and wrapped in duc~ tape with a fuseQ wick
like you would see in a firecracker sticking oue of one end of the
object.
At this point, I asked him if the name ~meant anything

one of the shooters. which he believes to be Dylan, told Savage to
get out of there and Savage ran from the library at this time.
Based upon a comment that. Hall made to me in the emergency
room, that being he didn't believe that Dylan would have shoe him
had he known it was him. but since he was Sitting with the joe.k./
he assumed that he was probably lumped into that group by Dylan.
I asked him. at this point, which of the individuals he was sitting

that Pat Ireland had been involved in basketball the year prior and
Dan Stepleeon was on the wrestling team. In res~onse eo my
questions :egardins the character and makeup of Dylan, he said that
