I played basketball, in the alley behind my house in Northeast Seattle, almost daily from 5th grade until high school. At Roosevelt High I played on the varsity basketball team my junior and senior years. And then I went on to Western Washington, in Bellingham, on a basketball scholarship. Later I played on the “All American Basketball” teams at KJRB, Spokane and KJR, Seattle. These teams, comprised of disc jockeys and “ringers,” would play faculty teams at various school gyms, in front cheering crowds of students, around the Pacific Northwest.
Below are photos from this 20 year basketball career.
