Dad’s positive attitude infectious
John Bowers said he and Steven often have healthy debates about certain rugby games.
‘‘He knows a lot more than I do, that’s for sure,’’ Mr Bowers said.
Steven is looking forward to writing for the Chronicle and said this was his way of being able to have an opinion on sports and to be involved.
‘‘If I can’t physically take part in sports, this is the next best thing,’’ Steven said.
‘‘To me there is more to life than being able to walk. I have my brain and that’s all that matters.’’
Sports fanatic: Matamata College student Steven Samuels will take on the role of sports columnist and reporter at the Matamata Chronicle. Steven hopes his sports column will provoke discussion and debate among the people of Matamata.
