NETWORK SEARCH FOR AMERICA'S MOST TALENTED KIDS
In 2007, Cartoon Network set out to find America's most talent kids and reward
them in a way to further their skills. For instance, if you were a dancer, they would give you an opportunity to work
with a professional dancer, or if you played a sport - a chance to work with a professional athlete. Out of thousands
of entrants from across the US, Kyle was one of 16 finalists, and he was the youngest - not quite 7. The Cartoon
Network sent out a film crew to shoot a profile on Kyle. They filmed him at Riverchase Golf Club in Coppell with his
coach at the time, Wesley Francis. They also went to Golden Bear Golf Center and even our house. It was a
long day but by the evening, Kyle was actually ill - he had a fever and a harsh cough. We gave him tylenol, advil, cough syrup
and loads of Gatorade. The interview seemed to take forever because Kyle coughed after he answered each question.
You can see that his cheeks were flushed beet red with the fever that never quite broke.
It was a lot of fun and incredible that it was broadcast on national television and it was up to the
public to vote online. He didn't make it to the finals, but we were honored just to have Kyle compete against so
many talented kids.
