Though Maynard Cress has had plenty of time on tractors and herding cattle, his life is replete with a multitude of interests and activities.
As a farm kid, he got his first horse at age 6. At 14, he bought a new tractor for $785, and rented 80 acres to grow wheat, milo and corn before soybeans had a presence.
At Humboldt High he played football a year at quarterback and basketball, but skipped track and baseball because spring was time to farm. Hes always found sports captivating, as participant and spectator, and seldom misses a Humboldt game.
