All-Time Teams

66 posts in this topic

Here's a positive topic we all should have some interest in and is probably very worthy of respectful debate as well.

Pick an all-time team from your school. Who are the best 5, regardless of their position, to play at your high school?

I'll go with White River Valley for now(We don't mess with the big orange round ball in Linton). The best team(they have only been consolidated since the early nineties) would have to be the team from 1993. Matt Graves(Butler), Marc Hostetter(USI) were the guards. They were 6'1" and 6'3" which is nearly unheard of at a 1A size school. Chad English played the role of defensive stopper. He had a special talent of getting into good players heads. Troy Halt(Rose Hulman) was the 4. He was a beast. Out muscled and played far bigger opponents. Josh Hallatt(Austin Peay via ISU) was the 7 footer in the middle. Very raw, but you can't coach height. The bench was scattered with 6'7" Matt Warrick(Marian?), Mark Graves, and Andrew Graves(Butler). The team lost a barn burner in the semistate championship game against Jeffersonville(the state champs for 1993).

Best players/all-time team would be Matt Graves, Andrew Graves, and A.J. Graves on the perimeter. The post would be manned by Halt and Matt Burgess(Indiana State).

Of course if you add the three schools that consolidated to form WRV(Switz City, Worthington, and Lyons) it would be tough to pick an all-time team.

My top 6 for the Mighty Lions is a tough choice because of all the great ones we've had. I'll list them in order in my opinion:

1. Junior Gee - Best ever. Played for Miami

2. Bill Butcher - Indiana All-Star

3. Jeff Doyle - Div. II National Champ at USI

4. Brian Canada - All time leading scorer at Loogootee

5. Doc Strange - Absolutely unstoppable in 1970 final four run

6. Eric Ackerman - School Board President

No Wilcher? Wow. I mean this is all just opinion, but to me Wilcher was the best guard ever at BR and they have had plenty of good ones.

I remember the Pacers used to play exhibition games with local groups (this is Bill Keller era). They played at the Hatchet House and really it was a pretty close game - but the best player on the floor was Junior Gee. The Pacer guards could not stop his penetration at all.

Is Doc Strange = Dave Strange? He didn't play in 1970 did he? My memory says he was later than that - maybe he was a soph on the 75 team?

Chris Craney was awesome, and agree he is BR's all time best. I'd add Mark Walton to this list, and probably take Devon Knepp off. Just my opinion.

These are always tough to choose, and obviously matters of opininon but I'll take a stab with ND in this order:

1) Vance Edmondson-All time leading scorer until broken by Trueblood. Currently assistant at West Vigo I believe

2) Mike Burch-averaged 23.5 a game in 69-70

3) Doug Smiley-Career scoring leader until record broken by Edmondson. Smiley played in early 70's

4) Clint Ramsey-Tough hardnosed player, career rebounding leader

5) Adam Trueblood-Career scoring leader

Would have to give honroable mention to the now deceased Bob Wilkie, best pure athlete ever at ND. 3 sport star excelled in baseball, football, and his third favorite sport, basketball. Also honorable metntion to Aaron Harbstreit and Ron Knepp

You will not find a top Jug Rocks list anywhere. But maybe ShoalsForever could provide you a top 5 JugRox list, after all, he was "pretty much" dunked on one time, by another "Indiana Legend" Ron Knepp. ;)

Not only that, USI won the D-II title year after Doyle graduated.

That would be Gabe Miller 2007 and Jeff Sneed I believe 1973. I totally agree with your selection of five but Scott Maley (approximately 1981) would also have to get a spot in their somewhere. Unfortunately having been out of the state throughout his entire HS career, I didn't get an opportunity to see him or his teams play but he was undoubtedly a dandy.

I want to see the top five Jug Rocks list.

There have been some really good Shoals players. Howard Pratt was as good as anybody ever in the area. Hawkins was a good player. There was a kid that scored a ton of points in late 70's time frame - Albright maybe? Shannan Davis was decent... My old memory cells are failing, but there have been some good individual players at Shoals.
