When he was just 18 months old, Mason Yamada pushed a bowling ball down the lane with the help of his father, Glenn.
“It was a strike, or at least that’s what my parents say,” said Mason, of Kenai, of his parents Glenn and Charlie Yamada.
That first roll also was apparently an omen.
In late May, Yamada, 19, signed a National Letter of Intent to bowl for Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee.
