  • Dana White gives advice to Ethan Hughes, 11, following his shooting on  Saturday, January 11, 2014. Hughes was practicing with a new bow he got for Christmas. After trying team sports, his mother Lauren Hughes said, they came up with a list of individual sports but it was Ethan who proposed learning archery. "It was love at first shot," Lauren said of her son who first started last March. His enthusiasm for the sport attracted his friend, Ethan Ninness, 12, far left, to learn. White has taught archery for about 40 years and has shot for 55 years. Although he has taught in Concord for 30 years, this is his first year teaching at the Heights Community Center. <br/><br/>(JOHN TULLY / Monitor staff)
