Larkin will honor St. John Friday night
Feb 6, 2014 10:26 PM - Elgin-area superfan Dave St. John will be recognized at halftime of Friday night's boys basketball game between Larkin and Elgin for his unwavering support of the athletic programs of each high school. St. John, 77, has deep ties to both schools. He is a 1954 graduate of Elgin High, where he met his wife, Nila (Class of '56). The couple's five sons later attended Larkin. Three played sports. St. John soon became a fixture at Larkin sporting events. He even worked the chains for Royals home football games for 10 years. "That's when I got hooked," he said.
