Mr. Lee provided George with a pair of binoculars and a transistor radio as tools for his job. George’s duties included, feeding Mr. Lee key players on a play, down in distance during the game, and updates on other local games of interest in progress. For over 10 years, Millard Dean Lee and George W. Britton, III were Carroll’s Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon.
Since initially being initially introduced to Carroll by Mr. Lee, Mr. Britton has taken an active and supportive role in all aspects of Carroll activities.
