Powell rider to shoot film in South America  

Ryan Berchtold is truly heading south for the winter.

A professional snowmobiler from Powell, Berchtold will leave for Chile on Sunday for five weeks of riding and filming.

He was never the tallest guy on the field, yet Jim Stringer always carried a towering presence.

I first met coach Stringer in his Powell High School athletic’s office, where I interviewed him for a 2013 season preview story.

Not only had I never met the man, I hadn’t even seen him.
