Jordan Hulls paused and considered the question from a parent in the fifth-grade class he was visiting about how he managed to build his athletic career amid the temptations of adolescence.
“What was it we always said, Jordan?” J.C. Hulls asked his son, offering an assist from the back of the room.
“I don’t know, Dad. There are so many things you always said,” Jordan said, breaking into a grin.
The fifth-graders laughed with the son, identifying with being on the receiving end of parental advice.
