DRAPER -- Sometimes, there are days you just know you will always remember.

Draper resident Brent Webb had one of those days last Saturday.

"To have it all happen within the same day, within a matter of probably four to five hours is awesome. It's just great," said Webb.

He's talking about going to three different sporting events to watch three of his grandchildren compete.

The way the games were scheduled, he knew he had to rush if he wanted to see a little bit of all of them.

"Yes, I was watching my watch," laughed Webb, "and I'm thinking of how long I can stay before I have to leave to get to the next one."

His planning paid off.

His first event was in Lehi, to watch his 12-year old granddaughter, Breylan Webb, compete for American Fork in the seventh-grade state cheerleading competition.

Her team won.

Next, he rushed north to Juan Diego High School in Draper.

His 9-year-old grandson Jadd Warner was competing for Herriman in the 8- and 9-year-old Gremlin Ute Conference championship football game.

Jadd's team won the championship as well.

Then, it was on to Kearns for his next grandchild, where 11-year-old Trett Warner was also playing for Herriman in the 10- and 11-year-old football championship game.

"It was like a blizzard for that game," said Webb.

However, Trett's team won that championship, too.

That made three state championships in one day.

Webb says it was the perfect day.

"I was just going from game to game to game," said Webb, "I didn't get to see them until after everything was done and really talked to them."

Webb credits their coaches for getting them this far.

He also says he tried to makes most of their games.

His grandchildren appreciate his efforts.

"I feel loved when I see him up there when I'm performing and stuff," said Breylan.

"I just like it because he comes to all of our games and it means a lot to me," said Jadd.

"It's just fun because he's always coming to all of our games and just supporting all of us pretty much," said Trett.

Of course, there's only one way for Webb to have an even better day; he has 9 grandchildren, you know.

"Win four. Maybe win four someday," laughed Webb.
