when i was in junior high, i was the tallest kid on the team usually and i played center. by the time i reached high school, i had stopped growing and was now one of the smaller kids on the team and played guard. well, one of my sports 'heros' during this time was pistol pete maravich and i so wanted to play like him. i practiced all the time, every day for hours. i loved making fancy behind the back or between the legs passes. i never was the scoreing machine pete was, but i was a very good point guard who knew how to control the ball and the game. this is a picture of me messing around from jan. 1972.
