Legendary Potsdam sportscaster Con Elliott recently enjoyed a very special visit at his residence at the Ogdensburg United Helpers Riverledge Lodge.
Lisbon Central athlete Tristan Vine has been making regular visits to the residents of the home and while talking to Elliott, the longtime Voice North Country Sports inquired if Bill Vine was his father.
When Tristan said yes, Elliott replied that he once presented Bill Vine with the NAC Division III West WSNN-FM Sportsmanship Award during the Section 10 Basketball Tournament at SUNY Potsdams Maxcy Hall.
When Tristan Vine returned for another visit he was accompanied by his dad, Bill Vine, who brought Elliott a ball and showed him the photo of the 1987 award presentation.
Elliott was very happy to see the photo and to find out that both Tristian and Bill Vine had earned NAC All-Academic honors.
