“Mr. Smith is not as he seems under that cool, calm exterior,” Mr. Mike Nelson ’96 joked. “On the inside there is a crazy man. Dangerous.”
Mr. Nelson was referring to his fellow Brophy alumnus, Mr. Steve Smith ’96.
Mr. Smith said he became friends with Mr. Nelson, who now teaches at Brophy alongside Mr. Smith, while they roamed the halls of Brophy.
