Commercial Portraits with Scott
My first memory of my friendship with Scott goes back to when I was in 3rd grade. I’ve told this story before in a talk I gave a couple years ago on the topic of edification for a ministry I directed. The school that Scott & I went to had an event twice a year called “Field Day.” We would have races, athletic games, & other events where we’d compete against each other. The 1st graders got paired with the 2nd graders, the 3rd with the 4th, & so on, which meant that if you were in an odd grade, half of the kids were bigger, stronger, & older than you.
Well, in the high jump event, it came down to me (a 3rd grader) & this 4th grader we’ll call “Jumpy Jumperson” to protect his identity. As I lined up to run for my final jump, this popular & cool 5th grader, Scott Huff, came over to me & said, “Kyle, you can totally beat this guy! I’ve seen you jump before & you can do it!”
I seriously remember getting so excited because a 5th grader, who I thought didn’t even know I existed, actually believed in me more than I did myself. In that moment, I didn’t want to let him down, so I just poured every ounce of energy I had into that jump & I ended up beating young Mr. Jumperson who was older, bigger, & stronger than me! Immediately Scott came over to give me a high five & said, “See, I told you that you could do it!”
Years later, Scott still makes that same kind of impact. He currently leads an amazing youth group in Kentucky as their youth pastor. I pray his kids know just how amazing he is. I’ve grown up with this guy & I consider him a brother. Hope y’all love the photos I took of him for his ministry. Make sure you follow Scott on Twitter; you’ll be glad you did!
