SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Meet Brenda Stone, financial secretary at Hillcrest High School. She sits through the double doors of the main office, a few steps left and around a corner to the right.
Kids come to her in search of bus passes, emotional support and everything in between. For Dorial Green-Beckham, Stone's office provided sanity these past few months -- a sanctuary to escape the madness of a football-recruiting frenzy unequaled nationally this year. Maybe ever.
