    RIP Jarrell, I wish we could share pictures as well as comments.

    Jarrell was a special friend, and was my Auto Technician Teacher @ BRHS for 2 years. We both along with several others developed a love for riding Dirt Bikes at Chipola. We spent many many weekends in the woods just riding, and sometimes running a few Enduro’s and Hare Scramble Events.

    Many great memories that will never be forgotten.

    RIP my friend.
