Sell, 30, still doesn’t own a cell phone. He seals his own driveway. Just last week, he came home during his lunch break from Home Depot in Rochester Hills – where he works in the garden department as part of the Olympic sponsor’s jobs program – and mowed the grass, said Clint Verran, his teammate on the Hansons-Brooks Distance Project.
