We had 3 future NFL players on our team. All 3 went on to win SBs.

Gonz our '85 FB team wasn't very good. We had Andre Rison and that was it. But the BB team had Glen Rice, Andre Rison, Anthony Pendleton (USC), and Jeff Grayer. Rison was actually a better PG then a FB player. But when he got to MSU they put a stop to that BB stuff. They beat teams so bad that the opposing team's fans would be in awe by the end of the game. Even cheering them at some of the plays. The best HS BB team in Michigan ever.

Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is asking the fans to be loud against the Falcons.

'79 was a great year also. At my HS (Flint NW) it was every 3 years - '79, '82, '85 and '88
Every three years for what? That they would win a game?

That was the glory years for High School basketball in Michigan. For about 15 years it seemed like the state was littered with true NBA talent.

"Eric Gregory - he was class of 80."
-------------------------------------That name sounds familiar but I can't put a face to it. I'm going to ask Andy.

Rieff was a monster yesterday, he absolutely dominated anybody he engaged.

With all the teams that are looking for a HC has any of them contacted Coldwell?

I believe the Kalamazoo Hornets were interested, but he was insisting he wanted to bring Ron Prince with him, and it squashed the deal.
