BCAM is proud to announce a project designed to recognize the sport’s top high school players from years past.
While statistical information on players from the 1920s and 1930s present challenges, BCAM did not want to avoid honoring athletes from the era when the center jump was a dominate feature of the game.
“BCAM has considered trying to go back to years previous to 1981 and coming up with players that would have been named Mr. Basketball if there was such an award at the time,” notes BCAM executive director Tom Hursey. “The Retro Mr. Basketball project accomplishes this goal. The basketball fans of Michigan will enjoy going back in time and either agreeing with or finding fault with our committee’s winners. Either way it will be fun reminiscing about days gone by.”
If you are related to any of these Retro Mr Basketball players or know the current where-abouts of any of these players, please contact Ron Pesch.
