Great description, high school basketball in Colorado in 70s was awesome


Dave Logan, Wheat Ridge
Jeff Knapple , Fairview, the QB, very under rated BB player
Micheal Ray Richardson, Manuel, NBA all pro with the Knicks
Lavon Williams, Manual, Kentucky,
Fred Taylor, Manuel, Arizona
Joe Barry Carrol, Denver East, No. 1 NBA pick in 1978,
Tom Chambers, Fairview, 1977, NBA Allstar,
Many other remarkable players but these were the ones I actually had the opportunity to play with/or against. All completely out of my league, especially Michael Ray and Dave Logan, best athletes I ever saw in high school.

Michael Ray was considered the third best player on his team, but when you saw him in person you could see he was one of the best pure athletes Colorado has produced. Ran the full court like nobody I have ever seen.
Dave Logan was simply a man amongst boys. There was no defense.
