A funny thing happened to Norfolk native Dave Ptak on his way to becoming a sophomore in high school.
He grew. A lot.
Inside of a year, his slight 5-foot-2 inch frame gained 12 inches from head to toe. And with that, his opportunities on the basketball court also grew by leaps and bounds.
“How I got to be taller, I have no idea,” said Ptak, who assumed the role of Hastings city attorney on Nov. 4, 2013.
