Brad's Beat: Young Webb City Skaters
By Brad Douglas
WEBB CITY, MO.--- Most kids learn how to skate when they enter grade school, however, that's not the case for two young boys in Webb City. Braxdon Rich, 4, and his two year old brother, Alex, are regulars at Skateland. Braxdon and Alex both pretty much learned how to skate after they learned how to walk. Their grandfather, Kevin, takes them to the rink every weekend and spends several hours there. He says skaters usually don't start this young.
"They're the youngest I've ever seen take to it. Never afraid. If they fall, they get right back up. Very rarely ever cried," said Kevin Rich, Grandfather.
Braxdon is so talented, he uses inline skates and they had to special order his shoes since they don't make them that small.
